I Carry You Forward

By Fernando Gallegos

I carry you forward

Not a single eye to eye exchange
That uncovered our inner universe

Not one single “what’s wrong?” that turned into hours and hours of heartfelt exposure

I carry you forward

The soft skin against skin
The silent search for each other’s hands
The lingering scent of love
The whispers, ear to mouth, the whispers

I carry you forward

Into the cavities of new memories
Into the steps to be taken
Into the nights that will be lived
Into the mornings that have still to be seen
