Unexpected chance

The room warms with an unexpected light

Beauty grows from a bleeding wound

Young and soft faces overwhelmed by struggles

Seasoned and scarred hearts see with experienced eyes

Fighting for a future in unfamiliar waters

Mooring a vessel after navigating the vast seas

One just setting sail waiting for the winds

Another ready to drop their tattered sails

A blooming love

A lifetime of love

A chance to start

A chance to finish

The universe in motion
