Everything Has Changed

You fell asleep to a Taylor Swift song this morning.
I slipped you into bed.
Shower forgot, I turned on the computer.
I needed to write.
It's how I make sense of the world,
of me,
of you belonging to my world now.
Five minutes, you are awake again.

The words to Taylor's song
make a rhythmic backdrop to my typing,
all I know, all I know.
I don't know how to explain this new reality.
This place I've come to in the last four weeks.
All I know is everything has changed.

So I let Taylor do my talking, her words mine,
my heart overflowing.

Maybe someday I'll have time to write it all out.
How that moment we met was everything I've waited for
and more.
How four years of longing were ended with intense pain followed by
breathtaking joy.
How I forget to stop watching you.
Ten minutes, twenty, an hour.
Your daddy laughs "Are you still staring at her?"
Yes, I am. You're beautiful.
All I know since yesterday
is everything has changed.
