It's You

It's You

A Poem by A.Lee

I close my eyes in meditation

Drawing strength from empty air

Trying to hold myself together

Trying to will myself to care


It feels my heart is slowly stopping

It feels my strength Is fading too

There’s no release for this but pain

There’s no release for this but you


I see the way your eyes would twinkle

Every time that you would smile

I feel the way you steal my breath

Each time your face crosses my mind


I feel you make my heart beat faster

Yet while you’re near I feel so calm

When all I see is endless desert

You are a rain drop’s gentle fall


I know it makes no sense, but somehow

When my world’s fading, falling, dead

I hear your voice and it lends me strength

Though so few words are ever said


I’d give the world to always feel

The simple peace I feel with you

To always have you within reach

Because it’s you that pulls me through

A beautiful and positive poem. We need our good friends to hold us up when we are down. Dance the dance of happiness when we feel alive and well. A excellent poem with a positive feel. Thank you.

Very emotional work. You always seem to just get to the heart of
the matter. That is some friend. Inspiration has come to life.
