With love for my dear friend Bob and gratitude to Jennifer for the awardicon.
|I recognize myself within your smile
Your tenderness that stirs me, lights my way.
Forgetting mortal confines, distant miles,
I fancy that I sit with you today.
I see you pensive in your darkened place
And watch your face light up when I arrive.
I always find my solace in your space
And always find support through which to thrive.
A path to you is not so very long,
I've travelled it a thousand times before.
You sit with me within our spirits' song
And gently hold my hand upon the shore.
Like vibrant blossom, with sunshine and dew,
So too is my soul when nourished by you.
*dedicated to my friend Candlemaker
