He stood there looking at me for a moment
Then moved my hair out of my face.
Sighed twice, saying nothing
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.
