To Dance

I surrender the wall
Brick by brick
That I’ve built
Around my heart.
Into your loving hands
I see them go
As you carry them away
With a glint in your eyes
As if you knew this day would arrive.
And while I at first
Grasp at the bricks
And then look
Longingly after them –
I know that we
Now have more space
To dance.
