Gentle and soft


So soft and gentle

Delicate, yet subtle

Why oh why do we adore you?

Is it your saving grace?

Here with us on this heavenly space?

Whatever, no matter

Your beauty will always shine forth

Even in the darkest, greyest of days

Your beauty shines, glows happily

We wonder, ponder

At your vision

We wonder, ponder

What you think of us

Yet leaning into you I know what I am thinking

I cannot let you go

I want, need to see you grow

Grow, grow

You bring such love unconditionally

For each and every one of us

You have taught me to be gentle and so, so delicate

How to love

How to trust

Like I know that I can trust you

With my love and devotion

Protecting you through the winds and rains

Your beauty shining, brightening

Through my deepest darkest days

Through my childhood days

Seeking, searching the beauty of flowers

Even through the showers

You glistened, gleamed, shimmered 

Holding you so gently, delicately

In my childhood, adulthood hands

In awe, awestruck

At your amazing, astonishing

Startling, miraculous, marvelous

Heaven sent

Sent for me and you

You’ll always remain a memory

A memory so sweet and simple

Purely and simply

Oh how you make me feel whole

For all eternity
