The Greatest Gift

God how I love you darling,

Maybe the greatest gift we have given each other is that of patience with our hearts and patience with Ourselves

You truly hold my Heart,
And if you would do me the great honor,
Come
and Hold my Hand

Let’s make something Special,
Together
for all the Seasons of our Lives.

Playfully dancing as snowflakes do,
A frosty bite in the air, you turned my cheeks to blush

Piercing through me, through my very bones,

You tossed the illusion of this world upside down,

As I tossed caution aside,

Opening the window to let you in like nothing before

Nothing less, nothing more

Strong and fierce, you blast the senses,

Creating piles of leaves to truffle through with joy, rain swept sideways, Dorothy flying from Kansas

True to nature, you too are the gentle breeze off the cerulean waters,

Calming my spirit on a sweltering summer’s day,

Sending butterflies twirling, dipping and fluttering, through the meadows of my heart

Children below giving you thanks

As they hold fast, racing through the grass

Wrap me up, wrap me up and take me..  away we’ll fly,

Wherever we may land is home.
