I enjoy expressing my thoughts through poetry, travel and well-being tips.
By chance we crossed paths on a mild winter evening around nine
You led me to discover your light as you curiously noticed mine
Days went on and I could feel your warmth now from a distance
Comforting and soothing; you wore down my resistance.
A tender and subtle distant dance of souls slowly bonding
With caring, laughter and feelings growing so fondly
Our hearts open to wonder; we were lost in our own world
It seemed destined to grow past the season, beyond a brief whirl.
The myriad of memorable moments, the words we have said
Seemed precious and true, but down a rocky path we were led
Strong winds of seasons change tore our bond apart
Inevitably and truly then bruising my heart.
Once guiding me to a place so happy and bright
I became lost and lonely with the dimming of your light
Aimless and adrift as your glow faded, harder to see
Still the power of that season, I'll always hold within me.
