Fortune Cookie

The fortune cookie of my life cracked open one day and a small paper fortune fluttered to the ground.
I picked it up and your name was on it.
That's how my life came to be reset to zero.
Through a life of star-filled prairie nights,
bright new england days where the surf spoke to my toes,
midnights sliced by sirens and thunderstorms in the nation's capital, you emerged.
I finally found a home and you were there waiting for me.
Our differences and similarities inspire me.
And you give me wings.

Thank you.
