The Renewal of the Promise

It had been so long

I’d forgotten the taste

of hope

The effervescent tingle

bubbling up

warming, buoyant


The sight of something more

than endless tomorrows

stretching to a flat horizon


The hope of something astonishing

in this life

not just the next

Hope for today

not just for tomorrow

Hope for me

not just for us


I’d forgotten that life eternal

begins now
