I was changed.
I knew I had walked into a situation,
that would not only test me,
but it would pull me apart.
Leaving me unrecognizable.
It was the moment my eyes met yours.
My heart seemed to stop and be reborn.
It was in that moment that this fleeting, failing, fallen world
suddenly took on a bright, youthful, mystical glow.
There is goodness here still,
That much I know.
