If you are lost, can’t find a way

Like a search light I shall find you

Pluck you from the stormy seas

And turn the tides to shore

If you get scared when their monsters’ play

Like a blanket  I shall cover you

And tuck you close, be your shield

It’s all just smoke and mirrors

 

So hush sweet angel

No more tears

I’ll stay right here, beside you

Through the brutal and the beautiful

I’ll love you for all time

The universe is a painter. A hushed brush slips over  canvas. Indigo kisses grey. The sky rips open in a shower of scattered pearls. Land stills beneath Winter’s touch.

Snowflakes tumble, blanketing the lonely streets. Crystals shimmer and tease shadows. Moonlit ribbons drape the dark. From the forest’s edge, he steps. 

The silence is deafening.

And I stand enchanted by the wonder of it all.

“Listen,” she said.

I am in love with you.

To this day, you linger on the edges of my mind, clouding my lens. It’s that simple.

You’re my first thought in the morning, my last dream at night. Any time, anywhere. It’s all you.”

Darling,

Never forget

You were hardened from the sparks of your ancestors

Polished by their grit and glory

A diamond in the dirt

And when others doubt your value

Be still

Place a hand over your soft heart

And listen

Let their voices drum a reminder.

 

“‘You are enough’, ‘you are enough’, ‘you are enough’.”
