“May 25, 2016”

some people only like to read articles
others only like to read poems
both reveal the heart
both let people in
if it’s written in the open

tomorrow my reality becomes real
tomorrow I’ll be married four months
tomorrow I get to see my husband

many of you know
how I fell in love in an instant
with my ex-husband

I flew out to Texas to surprise him
welcomed him into my heart
and we married three days later

he’s on his way to get me
driving from Texas to pick me up
he’ll be here tomorrow

no more waiting
no more missing
no more being-on-hold

my reality becomes real
in a more tangible way
with a hug
with a kiss
with a smile
