Listening without a word spoken,
Loving without a promise broken,
Laughing when anger provoked;
Releasing strident memories evoked.
Expecting only what you would give,
Eliciting only what you would forgive,
Erasing what past wrongs befell;
Allowing love to crack your hardened shell.
Molding a future from lessons once tossed,
Melding a life renewed with one uncrossed,
Making dreams awaken by accepting tenderness;
Keeping grounded by embracing nature’s sacredness.
Finding faith inside yourself,
Freeing ties that have worn upon your shelf,
Fixing challenges one obstacle at a time,
Being comfortable with the climb.
Cuddling with your loving friend,
Caressing her mind with stories on end,
Collecting happiness as we meet,
To bring a union of souls upon its feet.
(Dedicated to the One I Love)
