hand in hand

i’m convinced
that day in january
when i entered your bakery
i stepped into a new universe

one where i’m wanted
one where i’m happy

and maybe you did too
out of the old
into the new
parallel but better
adjacent and improved

and all this has me nervous
to walk through doors
into bakeries
fearing there may be some new universe
with every next step

but i find peace
knowing you’ll stay
no matter what galaxy
we find ourselves in

you and i
wandering the stars
hand in hand
