Featured Poem: What If All

By Tyler Knott Gregson

What if all we have ever wanted

isn’t hiding in some

secret and far away dream,

but inside of us now

as we breathe one another

and find home in the way

our arms seem to fit

perfectly around the spaces

between us?

What if we are the answer

and love was the question?

What if all this time

it was us you were supposed

to find?

I am filled with wonderings,

questions, and doubt.

But one of these things I am certain:

It will always be you

that gives flight to the

butterflies inside me,

calm to the sea I have become,

and hope to the darkness all around us.

It is you and it has always

been you….

you.

You that soothes and excites

and spreads joy like rainfall

on the already damp earth;

you that pulled me from the longest

sleep and kissed my eyelids

awake.

If life is a question mark,

then you, my love,

are the proud and bold period

that is typed with certainty.”
