I Saw Us (a poem)

Updated: Aug 15, 2019

I sat on my pillow in the corner of my bed.

I looked beyond my bed

Beyond my window

Beyond the confines of reality

And I saw the beach

I saw the sunset

I saw the life I want

I saw the kids


Brown and beautiful like you

I saw our home

In our kids’ eyes

I saw it

I saw us

My eyes had never been so opened

Until I closed them

Allowing the salt from the ocean before me to flood my eyes

Like home and reality melding for a moment

It’s like home found me

I saw it

I saw us
