I hope that when the world breaks your heart open
You will remember the moon
Brilliant and slivered shining across one earth.
I hope that when the world disappoints you
And you are fractured with the tiniest of paper cuts across your soul
You will remember my words
Echoing across any ocean
Even time itself
You are pure love to me
Etched upon my heart
I hope that when you are ashamed and fear that the worst they’ve said is
All together true
And written in bright lights
You will remember how the flame endured
And a people passed it on
And how it lives now in you.
