To be kissed on the forehead by the future me

When you get there you will know
you will know what comfort means
you will be kissed on the forehead
by a tender me if I were to meet
myself in a year and be kissed
on the forehead how was your year
it will never be alright nights will
be painful I was there I saw the nights
it is happening to people I know
I would kiss them too on the forehead
by the older me the one who made it
through the year that would be the one
kissing not just a hollow form it is vast
it is gigantic a kiss on the head
by the man I'll be in a year the comfort
of that knowing kiss of me who will
have made it to then.

You put words to what so many of us feel, Toddy - we'll survive the year and be better when we are ready.
