Another day dims but the light of your love radiates brighter than ever. In this worn out, weary world you’re the one constant, the heart of who I am. You’re my shimmering star, the everlasting one whom I continue to follow. Even when darkness overtakes me, nobody, not one can change my mind. For you live within me, you’re the breath of my soul, the very reason I shine. I love you completely, and I will trust you with my life because you gave me yours.

For everyone here on WordPress, this is what you do to me whenever I read your lovely words. Thank you for always inspiring me and leaving me feeling comforted and loved. It’s this community that really brings me home.
Oh the feeling When I read such words The kind that touch my soul It’s pure bliss Orgasmic Mind-blowing Genius And I just want to shout out My unfeigned amazement From the rooftops Every time you write
It’s like a mother Who watches her child Take their first step Excitement and pride Respect and elation Gratitude and wonderment They all flood my chest Puffing it up With crisp memories Of bygone days The ones you leave me remembering The ones I want to hold on to Gripping tight to those nostalgic days Because I fear letting go
After all, I may never remember Those precious nuggets of time The ones that settle deep down In the hidden recesses Of my aging heart So I hold on Grasping ― white-knuckled Death gripping your words Because each lovely Beautiful Heartfelt word Each one of them Brings me home
It’s been quite a long time Since I last held you And now you just don’t feel the same You’re like a long lost friend The kind I used to know so well The sort I’d spend every day with Who I’d laugh and cry with The kind I’d stay up all night with Who’d listen and love me for me Like the friend who was always there No matter time or day The sort who cared about everything Regardless of its true importance But now things are different And you feel so unfamiliar Our connection has sadly faded And the magic that was once inside you Seems to have lost its fiery spark You used to be so mesmerizing I could stare at you all day long Your life-giving enchantments saved me And I wonder why you had to change You used to write the loveliest things But like a long lost friend Who was once as close as a brother You just aren’t the same as before I’m afraid the spell has been broken And the essence of you is surely gone
