My comfort is… YOU

YOU take my hand slowly, gently and with a tender love that cushions. YOU.  I fall back slowly, safely into your embrace.  YOU.  Your voice saves me with echoes of support, guiding me towards a paradise that only YOU and I know.  YOU. Our decadent fairy tale unfolding bliss, after bliss… after bliss. YOU.  It is a familiar honey whisper heaven full of warmth, dreams of futures yet to be fulfilled, memories lived in lifetimes that have passed deliciously, effortlessly… naturally.  YOU.  Those lifetimes are an unwavering foundation built on friendship that is deep, loving, unconditional and brave. YOU.  Our sighs dance around an amorous waking kiss, so sweet your lips on mine.  YOU.  I dare not utter a word against such a kiss. YOU. It is such a delightful gift, my treasure.  YOU. Your fiery heart courageously cradling mine… wanting only the good for me, the best for me.  YOU. Feeling special now, beautiful now, adored now… full of life now.  YOU.  My darling, my love, my world, my future, my dream come true, my comfort… YOU.

YOU – Lyrics

If you must wait,
Wait for them here in my arms as I shake
If you must weep,
Do it right here in my bed as I sleep
If you must mourn, my love
Mourn with the moon and the stars up above
If you must mourn,
Don’t do it alone

If you must leave,
Leave as though fire burns under your feet
If you must speak,
Speak every word as though it were unique
If you must die, sweetheart
Die knowing your life was my life’s best part
And if you must die,
Remember your life

You are
You are
Oh, you are
You are

If you must fight,
Fight with yourself and your thoughts in the night
If you must work,
Work to leave some part of you on this earth
If you must live, darling one,
Just live
Just live
Just live

Songwriter: Keaton Leslie Henson

    1. You are kind with your wisdom. I am an introvert, would you believe, lol. All my life I’ve been a loner and enjoyed it. Didn’t care one way or the other if people liked me or not. I was content with my thoughts. Easier. Now… love blossoms and forces you out. Nature does that. Human nature… planting seeds… making connections forcing others out where they belong but didn’t know it. I cherish it every second of every day. I am fortunate to have true love and friendship and if that should leave me tomorrow (hope not), I will be all the better for having experienced it.
      Thank you friend for your wonderful visits and insightful thoughts! I’m certainly a lucky girl for it! 😉

  1. Wow! This is one of the best poems I’ve read so far. I felt like I wanna be inlove again as your words linger in my mind. When someone who’s so inlove writes, the message is contagious you automatically inspire readers to not fear love and to never stop believing in love. Thank you for this. Much love. 🙂

  2. Ummm… Why you gotta be like that?

    Why do you have to be so perfect?
    I couldn’t say I deserve this. I’m happy for all you are, but I try to make you feel special.
    Your heart, your wisdom, your love and support, your tender care, your passion… I’m on fire for you!

    You inspire me to be the best person I can, which I hope is enough. A glance at the sky, and I’m yours. A few notes of a song, and I’m yours. Another day I wake up and function, and I’m yours. Always. I hope I do even a fraction of what you wrote.
    One day…

    1. I’ve read this many times over… I will likely read it many times again. I’m trying to wrap my mind around it. Trying to comprehend what I did in my life to deserve such a caress… such a kiss. You humble me with your affection… your tender love and care. The world around me bustles while my heart dreamily simmers in the lovely comfort of your words. I am home in you… breathe sigh. 😍

      1. Ah… My dear lady… It’s not what you did (though you make my heart melt). It’s who you are that inspires and compels me to live inside your heart even as you are a part of mine. My life is a dreamy existence these past few months… these past few lifetimes. That is because of you, your soul, your love, your giving caring heart… Which you somehow decided to share with me… And for which I am eternally grateful. I can’t write or say anything I feel is worthy of you. But I won’t stop trying.

    2. You deserved this poem and everything I ever wrote for you. I meant every word. Forgive me for saying otherwise. I will treasure you always as my deepest love and best of friends. Thank you for that gift. If I delete comments and edit others it is because family is reading. I found out my sister is reading. I have deleted most of your comments and saved them as images, only for me to read. The rest I will keep and maybe edit. Maybe you can forgive me one day and we can be friends. Take good care my love.


  3. Everyone has someone who feels like home, someone.. with whom feeling sad becomes better than feeling sad alone… Someone who’s presence makes you feel safe… there’s always someone with whom you don’t have to be perfect… You don’t have to be anything… You just have to exist… Someone with whom your flaws vanish… They’re there but they go away somehow…..
    It’s not how the universe was made
    Humans just evolved to be incomplete
    Lower organisms do not have a sexuality
    Evolution split life into incomplete bits
    Incomplete bits that come together to make life complete
    When you find someone who makes you feel complete the feeling of wholeness.. is inexplicable..

  4. You presented us with a beautiful song, Have You sent the tissues, You made teary again, You give me goosebumps with your words, You make my heart beat, You give my soul feet, You give my dreams somewhere to sleep,
