soul

you are

Posted on Updated on

you are

honest

truthful

gentle

brave

one of the greatest men I’ve ever known

and there

you are there

when tides of darkness

come crashing into me

when I feel like no one cares

and that my life will become dark

you are the light that brings me back

your smile lighting the world

more than even the sun and the stars can

you make me feel

safe

strong

warm

complete

when no one else can

when I don’t want to

and when I feel like I no room to grow

you are the best thing that’s ever happened to me

and also the worst

because you are more to me

than I am

to

you

when you ignited my soul

when you ignited my soul

you taught me how to feel

I know you didn’t mean to

but you did

your blue eyes piercing mine

like none had ever done before

I want you to feel my warmth

but you don’t

I saw myself today

I saw myself today

at the water’s edge

blonde hair fluttering in the cool breeze

a stark reflection ebbing with the water

morphing

partially transparent

the clearness of the water

and the colors of the river below

sparkle and mix

appear magical

 

the colors of my soul

searching to find the beauty and strength

in all that surrounds me

 

the calmness of the day

of the warmth of the sun at my back

take away the struggles

the drama

the fear of the unknown

and replace them with what’s important

love

friendship

passion

reminding me of who I am

and why I’m here
