With three knocks at the door
She knew he had arrived
Her parents told her this day would come
That the man would appear
But she didn’t see him on their last day
She thought about not opening the door but her soul told her she had to
She twisted the doorknob and removed the barrier that stood between them
She wanted to tell him she couldn’t go
That her son was just upstairs sleeping soundly in bed
Unfortunately, she knew her argument wouldn’t hold weight
She would still have to go
Her home was laying over there lifeless at the bottom of the stairs.
Witnessing her hesitation he opened his mouth and decreed, “Your journey is complete.
Your test is finished. Some paths may be long. Some may be short but you must come with
me so another soul can begin.”
