This night is one for the taking. It’s in rare form this evening. The light shines down on us and illuminates our faces. We search but the shadows are no where to be seen. They hide from us and our image of effervesence. We’ve split this night wide open. There is no room for the darkness so it slinks away in fear and cowers in the corners. The cracks are no longer closing. They’re opening up to us instead. We step through them now and emerge on the other side. I take with me my hopes and dreams and leave my sins behind. I watch you do the same and wonder what your past was like. We’ve never spoken of days gone by and instead just think of today. This evening is one for the storybooks. We’re coming together, you and I, and all I know is this evening.
