This poem is dedicated to someone who always makes me smile, even if unintentionally.
I have no idea if you know who you are… but I know who you are. Thank you.
Last night or was it early this morning?
I went to sleep in denial
Desperately hoping for another’s life
Never thought I’d find my smile
I dragged myself out of bed hopelessly
When unwelcome morning came
Heavy pain like a lead weight on my chest
Not new… just more of the same
Nothing can truly take it all from me
It will never disappear
But with your sweetness, you lighten the load
You help me forget my fears
In these moments, though few, I feel sunshine
Even when windows catch rain
Though I confess it hasn’t happened yet
I’d love to feel that always…
