When we are together again,
and everything is as it should be
as it was supposed to be
for the first time, again.
When we are together again…
The things that I will say…
At first, they will start with words
like, “I should have” “I could have” “I wish”
When we are together again
I will tell you about how it is all this time later
That I realized you had this little treasure chest
And you reached into it, and you pulled things out of it and you gave them to me.
They were barely warmed by my hands
before they were forgotten…
And there was so much still left
that you wanted to give me
But it is with you now.
and when we are together again.
I will kneel down, and I will open it with you,
and I will cherish the things that you share with me.
