That Man

I stood upon the hilltop of my life
And looked across the years,
Seeing the enormity of it,
And feeling the impact of
The journeys made,
The relationships navigated,
Often on rough seas.
I knew again the great dreams
I had tried to live,
The heartbreak of failure
And the wonder of success.
The vision, like a sudden
And massive blast of
Profound music,
Moved in me once more
Everything I had
Ever been or felt.
I wept with the enormity
Of what was revealed;
For I had not known
I had
Been that man.
