Poem: You Make Her Feel Normal

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

You make her feel normal is about a woman who gets upset having to face the world and wants to hide. But when he wraps his arms around her she makes it through another lonely night. As he wipes her tears she feels safe. He accepts her, chasing her blues away. She feels normal once again.

"Rainy Days and Mondays" by The Carpenters

You Make Her Feel Normal

One minute she is on top of the world,
beaming from inside,
feeling invincible,
the next moment she is hiding in the darkness
wanting to crawl away
into a cave.

But when your arms wrap tightly around her
with your tender fingers gently caressing droplets from her eyes
she can survive another night
feeling safe from the storm.

Your familiar voice echoes throughout her bones
accepting her for who she is,
holding her with a loving grasp
chasing away her blues,
making her feel normal once again.

"I Turn To You" by Christina Aguilera

Brenda, This poem so clearly describes the love that one needs to provide, especially when one is not feeling secure in her own way. Very meaningful.
