~(Because I wouldn’t want you to forget in my absence) That I love you, in the way the tide loves to push and pull a wave.
I love you in the way the tide loves to push and pull a wave.
Like returning a recognizing gaze
From one soul to another
Instinctively sending signals
No barriers or judgement between us
Bringing one to wonder,
How does love melt the cold?
And mend the change in the seasons
Like a thread with no knots or ends
And yet so many links
To connect strength
And the steps we take to keep on breathing
I said, I love you, in the way the tide loves to push and pull a wave.
I said I want you to learn the letters in my name
And now you tell me it was worth it, wasn’t it?
Because yes, this world can be too harsh and too cold,
Life is short they always say, but we know the nights are longer
And if you can find warmth in a friend
That’s the best hot cocoa I ever sipped on a freezing, frigid day
Your arms never let me down before
And my voice will always bring you back
To the little home we made
With windows never closed,
Doors on all four sides,
The architect’s plans left room for nothing but growth!
Immeasurable depth lies between our souls
So, today I plant seeds of peaceful dreams
In an endless garden
Each stem that grows will carry hope
Each leaf and flower lifting up honest, pure emotion
The bees and butterflies will buzz
And when they do, we’ll smile, watering our garden with more love
Just so more and more souls can come and coexist
With us too.
I love you, in the way the tide loves to push and pull a wave…
Stand by me and I will stand by you as family,
Cherishing the home we made.
God forbid you forget the directions,
I will show you the way
And in the meantime I only ask that
You keep my keys safe,
Your cheeks lifted,
And your smile, the same. :)
