Reflections

A Poem by GreenEyedPoet
"

Written 2/1/15 This was inspired by recent realizations.

"
Sometimes I sit here
Lost; in reflection
Wondering why it was
So easy for you to care
Wondering why it took me so long
Just to see
Something that had always been so clear
Wondering how you could so easily see
Right through the mask I wear
Or how in the chaos that is myself
You find such beauty
You came into my life
When I least expected it; when I needed you the most
You taught me it was ok to trust again
That I could remove the facade and open up
Showing my true colors without scaring you away
You taught me that I don't have to always act strong
I can be vulnerable and cry to you; without it being a weakness
But the most important thing
You've taught me overall
Is unconditional love
That it knows no bounds nor flaws
And I thank God
For removing the haze over my eyes
So that I may see it everyday
I often question the ways
I could show my gratitude
For all you've done
I could thank you
A million times
But it will never suffice
(End)

Author's Note

GreenEyedPoet
Recently I've realized just how much certain people actually care about me. I've never known what unconditional love was until my two best friends came into my life. But it's taking me many years to finally see it. So this is to those who mean so much to me.

Green EyedPoet What can I say ,Its so well written It belongs to wcafe. I'm now green with envy and this will remain this way . A talent in the making,.I do so enjoy your writes but on raising the bar, you have surpassed me with these remarkable writes I'm left on the floor now thoughts all but crushed because from ever your thoughts came from , it wasn't me in a rush. Silly banter to say you are bloody good, my friend lol
