He stood there looking at me for a moment

Then moved my hair out of my face.

Sighed twice, saying nothing

But smiling.

Then it just hit him

He asked me

“What in the world

Do you see in me?


I see rainbows after a downpour

The calmness after my storm

A few moments I don’t have to breathe

Or fight this nagging war anymore.


I feel at peace with the world

I have no enemy

Everything I ever wanted

Stands right before me.


I hear your whisper in my ear

Your promise of solitude

A healthy and forgiving love

A generous and loving mood.


I see so much in your sometimes

I forget there is also me

I wonder why you look so wonderful

And how beautiful it is you are here.
