For eternity..

I see myself in the mirror
of their eyes;
crystal clear, He who I am.

I see not scars of love,
for their support heals;
I see not old hopelessness,
for they exude confidence;
I see not ghosts of fear,
for their presence calms;
I hold me close to life.

I hear myself in their laugh
that echoes;
crystal clear, He who I am.

I hear not words of doubt,
for they speak of belief;
I hear not derisive tones,
for they understand ideas;
I hear not ghosts of past,
for they show the present;
I believe in myself again.

strong, where I am weak,
brave, when I turn meek,
priceless she is to me;
I wonder what I have done,
to deserve such friends,
best friends for eternity.

(’12, Oct 07)

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
