That “more-than” Moment 1/24/18

Our relationship, like all others,

is comprised of moments

that act like bricks

which we use to connect to each other

 

granted, our bridge is well constructed

with many moments, each beautiful

on their own, yet coming together

to form something even more breathtaking

 

like stars, beautiful in their own right, but

forming a kaleidoscope more spectacular together

 

however, there is a brick I’ve named:

“That more-than moment”

 

a time when a person discovers

they care about a person,

more than they care about themselves

 

Sitting on a tile floor,

my body screamed “Close your eyes”

but my heart whispered “Not until she is okay”

 

and my heart was more persausive

 

happily I became a soldier

fighting to defend his country

 

but my country was a soul

I cherish and treasure

my country was you

 

My chest felt each retch

as if it was my own

my nerve endings recreated

each pain you felt

 

As far as my eyelids fell,

they never fell so far,

that they couldn’t make sure,

your hair never hit the water

 

In this moment, you won a place in my heart

reserved for those, I put above myself

cheerfully, wonderfully, on a pedestal

made of marble and smiles

 

and in this moment, our bridge became stronger

I could feel myself place

“That more than moment” brick down
