New Horizons

It took years before I saw you this close
Before I could make out the marks on your face
You’ve obviously been bruised before, you seem smaller
Colder
But also wiser
Like you’ve seen much more of this wide universe we call life than anyone else has
I’ve always gravitated close to home
I know you’ve always been farther
Sometimes people didn’t know whether to acknowledge you
But they do now
I do now
Now that I’ve seen you this close, I don’t think I’ll ever be the same
What used to be a blur is now clear
I know you, I am here
and maybe the space will always separate us but know that
I will always be thinking of you
