now occurs
the first time
you see
with your heart.
you might look at the stars,
listen to a grandparent,
perhaps look in a mirror —
your heart will tell you
“this is true,
there is more
than you will
ever know.”
Know this:
though the heart sees truth,
the heart is blind,
it will never know—
only feel—
and this will be part of you
all your time.
