In Awe

Dear Two Armed Form  
What do we do with all this?  

We bear it with tears and laughter,
With wonder.
We fly in it,
Dive deep,
Come up gasping for more.  

We burst open,
And all the fragments of who we were
Fly away and might even
Come together again
In a new way.
And we dance
Or we fall about
With pain and laughter.  

We stand mystified.
Perhaps we fall on our knees
In awe.  

All at once,
Holding hands,
Lost and found.
