Legend

Dawn breaks
on the far side of despair,
and dreams can live long past
our pregnant bedside vigils.

Tomorrow is not a gift,
but neither is it a curse.
It is a blank sheet of paper
on which to write our story.

Our future is charted
by the characters we include,
the quests we embrace,
and what we chose to abandon.

The ink ever-flows in our hearts,
and the world waits eagerly for our decisions.

Excitement ended,
the children are content
to play with their prizes,
and leave their parents in peace.

The glitz and glamour
will soon be set aside
as the rigors of the real world
demand due attention.

So savor the memories –
these times between times,
this stillness between breaths –
as long as your are able.
