Just found this poem written in September…
You were just you, but now you are
My everything and more
Without your strength and guidance
Id be lost as I was before.
Though I didn’t expect you to mend me
To counsel or to heal
your love gave me space to breathe again
To feel whole, complete and real.
The world began to make sense again
You were sent to make me see
Though I’d been damaged before, and broken
What remained was not truly me.
The shell must have been knocked,
Of the armour I’d built up
As it failed to protect me from you
From your unquestioning accepting love.
I never meant to fall,
I was hard to it I thought,
But my heart had other plans for me
I needed to be taught…
That just because some must men fail
And must abdicate the crown
There are others out there, just a few
Who will never let you down.
And these ones are as rare and sweet
as a precious gem or stone.
So now you are simply not allowed
To step down from your throne.
Your strength made me queen once again
I am purposeful and sure
And I thank you for your unquestioning self
Your love all mine and pure
