gift

I said you were a gift but then i didn’t understand how
for my soul was speaking what my mind couldn’t know
you were sunshine for my shadows, warmth for my cold
but it was too brief for me to allow myself to believe
that a ray of your light could so easily open my heart
like seeds who blossom deep within the dark of the dirt
as a single blade of grass reaching for the winter sky
I would reach towards you no matter how far you’d stray
far far away, your sunshine showered no less upon me
even today I do not need a memory to feel what you gave
for you do not change as the sun, or moon, or clouds do
love is what we are despite it all, you me overflowing
enveloping all that moves: pure as air, deeper than the seas.
