You survived a thousand years
of heartbreak for one day of love.
You saw a thousand pigeons
for the sake of one dove.
You have survived your life
up to this moment.
It's the longest story you'll ever write
and you will till your fingers are broken.
Write your thousand years
of longing, painful, sweet.
You may find a meaning there
be in the prologue or down, down deep.
But also write your triumph.
Your single day of fulfilment
Your thousand years of rainfall
was worth your day of brilliance.
