front porch dreams

I dream of sitting down with you on the front porch
and talking about the things that matter most
Love lost and found
Stories not yet written
Dreams tucked away
Plans for the future
Moments of gratitude
And the struggles we are facing

I dream of looking into each others eyes
Feeling the pain and the passion
That comes from a life lived
Holding hands and listening deeply
Having the space to show up exactly as we are
Guard down, heart open, free to express the truth in our stories
Each taking the time to listen and see
Holding space for what flows out

I dream of the moment where expectations fall to the ground
Trust is formed
Love is flowing
Truth is brought forth
And compassion settles in
Yes, right there on the front porch
Where dreams are spoken
And struggles are set free

I dream of you and me
Sitting together
