A Beautiful Life

Do not judge
or compare your hurts,
your years, and your joys
to another’s.

You have created
a beautiful life—
own it.

Poem by Jessica Grace Sparks

somewhere between

Somewhere between
good morning and goodnight,
I found you.

And somehow,
even though you had
a future already imagined,
you wanted to create one with me.

I think we must have looked
at the night sky,
and seen the same stars.
