as you are

i feel you sometimes
when i least expect to
your deep baritone whisper
touches my attention
sweeps under my skin

i'm left wondering
what it would be like
to hold your hand
to feel their warm roughness
in a firm finger locked grip

I'd never let go.

i see you sometimes
as I round a corner
your open stance manner
smiles an engaging welcome
catches my surprise

i'm left dreaming

what it would be like

to look into your smiling eyes

to recognize love in them

in that moment locked in oneness

I'd never let go.

I perceive you sometimes
after a hungry uphill hike
your encompassing presence
responds to my doubts
with compassionate reassurance


I hear

It's okay

I hear

You are loved.

I hear

as you are,

as you are


i'm left wondering
what it would be like
to hold your hand
to feel their warm roughness
in a firm finger locked grip


its okay
you are loved
as you are
as you are


i'm left dreaming
what it would be like
to look into your smiling eyes
to recognize love in them
in that moment locked in oneness

you are loved, as you are.
I'd never let go

Wow, what vibrant pictures! I look out my window at the office and all I see is the drab, grayness of the sky. Come Spring, come quickly!

Dustin.....I took the photos yesterday when I visited the local greenhouse at lunch to get a quick hit of warmth and spring! It's the best time of year to visit a greenhouse. Today, we are having another snowstorm.....it is the snowiest winter we've had in years. in fact, I'm now home....everything has shut down for the day because it has turned into freezing rain. It's a terribly grey yucky day....
I'm glad you liked the photos.

Mark. thank you. A few word pictures came into my head yesterday....they stayed with me all day which is always an indication to me that I needed to capture them in a poem. I'm pleased with the result too. Thanks.

Hey Layla....I'm pleased you enjoyed it..... ;)
