I Want

I want to hear, “It’ll be alright” from someone who knows.

Someone who has a deeper hook into the earth than I,
Someone whose hands have skimmed more clouds than mine,
Someone who has gravity of their own …

Someone whose lungs have breathed more air than mine
-Not due to more seconds of breath, but more sighs of reveling in the day-
Someone who has seen more than I,
-Not due to more seconds of sight, but more moments spent seeing-
Someone whose heart has loved more than mine,
-Not due to more seconds of love, but more love in one moment-

I want to hear, “It’ll be alright” from someone who believes it.

I want to hear, “It’ll be alright” from me.
