That's your sign

That hug,
The embrace
That's a liniment
For this
Earthly mass,
The warmth
Seeping through
The layers of
Clothes I wear,
Calming
My frayed soul,
Embalming
It with
Your million dollar smile.
I was healed,
The moment
You
Pulled the door
Yesterday.

  11. That moment -- when you know -- is magical and you've done such a lovely job revealing it. For your character, it was a door opening. For me, it was watching my husband's profile as he was putting coins in a jukebox on our very first date. I knew. Your piece reminded me of this. Thank you.
