Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 Light Becomes Her
Moments cherished and held to today
become the now, much needed

There is none like her and we miss
the light that becomes her

For far too long it has been dark
It swallowed what was left of good
and spat out the worst of me

Spent is the word that comes to mind when
love too is taken prisoner, never to be seen

Yet wounds she tends with soft hands today
Taking the broken pieces in them and bringing
life to what death would have no part of

Scars born of brokenness heal today
Scars not seen upon a body frail that knew
of Her light whose soul dreamed of it and
of better days

Eyes squint as she approaches once again
to tell that love is here to stay and
sighs become hopeful and less desperate

Light becomes her, an angel without wings
but prayers, her prayers sprinkle about
erasing darkness that once had its way

Thankful for one of Heavens own and mine to have
for as long as she wants me

For as long our Father allows it

To converse with at dinner to reach over and under
the table, to feel alive and life as it should be

As no one is meant to be alone and broken forever

Light beomes her and I shall bathe in it as it
becomes me


One with her
