I’m hard to love at times
I go through shade periods like
the moon and I hide myself.
But I promise,
I will kiss your wound when they are hurting.
Even if they are in your soul,
I can find them with the light of my finger tips.
I will lead you once more to the river,
so you can remember how beautiful it feels to be moved
by something that is out of control.
And when our shade periods match ,
we can breathe with the grass and look at the sky
with our legs tangled together in love .
As we sit speaking silence,
cause our hearts now understands
that we were made for one.
The star will remind us of the beauty in our struggles
and we won’t feel lost anymore.
Love you always.
