Classic #Poetry

There are no words,

Just a heavy intake of air,

I guess I wasn’t quite prepared…

Every moment with you

written in my heartbeat,

and has been

etched forever there.

There are no words.

Just gratitude-

Just simplicity.

I feel overwhelmed with emotion-

After so much and so many years of the stinging salt of sadness,

I’m free // of the shackles-

I’m finally here

I may look like a mess

but I am healing-

& to have a downpour of laughter-

You’re so good at that &

Yes- that’s my soul needs-

Yes- that’s what I’m after,

The black and white era of my life has stuttered to a stop-

This kaleidoscope of Spring

has birthed colors I’ve never witnessed-

So many dramatic facets-

And yet – these memories are classic,

Here’s to a new year of growing.
