I played a trick on life
and trusted it.
Along with what my mind delivered;
the opening of a door, the murmur
of a child, the running feet from
a few rooms away until finally
they were no longer away, but here.
As if when having thought about life
with him, long before conception,
was a reality. And somehow, it was.
Much like the storm you feel coming.
Instincts materializing internally,
for no one other than yourself,
and the first drop falls, then you
hear the thunder- five years apart.
Life knew I was listening all along.
