He drives through night,

his fear,

navigating roads with poor eyesight 

and the anxiety of loss.

She waits, after 30 years, to release her last breath

upon his arrival.

His mind, his hand, reach for her

through lessening miles.

Following a companionship of sorrow-

reunion comes

in rainbows of falling tears.


these delicate movements,

carve the limitlessness of human hearts-

darkness can’t even stop that.
