A Step Ahead

You ran ahead of us.

Giggles of delight trailing behind you

Helping us forward.

You saw where we were going

Even before we knew there was a destination.

All you asked was that we stay together.

We tried. In our messy cluster of normalcy.

We tried. Even when it felt like dying, we tried.

Here we are. At the end. Your laughter still filling the gaps

Until what? What was it you wanted us to see?

Where were we supposed to go?

You are still running. Laugh trails streaming behind you.

We all want to feel that light and carefree so we follow.

Never questioning our own ability to create that kind of joy for ourselves.
