The thrill is unforgettable,
the moment never seems to fade
even in my fickle memory.
It’s beautifully gratifying,
the openness with which we shared
the repressed hopes and feelings
that we never thought we would.
There may have been times
I met with happiness as I know it,
or perhaps, I really don’t,
but happiness is what I found in
that awkward hug, knowing that
something was about to change,
yet remain very much the same.
