Our X

Our X

Regina Puckett


This is where we are

This bright blue star

Our X marks the spot

Each one of us a tiny dot

Each one a beating heart

Each one marked on some chart

So why can’t we see each other

And why can’t we recognize our brother

Why do you look away from me

It as if neither one of us can see

That while the world big it’s also small

And our little portion here isn’t all

So reach over here we’ll touch hands

Our entwined fingers will join our lands

Our beating hearts will drown out

What the newscasters shout

Let your X here mean more that a spot

And give love more than a moment’s thought
