Phoenix

Know that my heart is true
That my love seems to grow daily
What we have sometimes seems as still and safe
As a garden on a soft, warm spring morning
And then other times as swift and liquid
As a mountain stream splitting a canyon steep
I never could have imagined how complex
This set of feelings are for you
Not just part of my life, but fully entwined
In every thought and breath, worry and dream
The warmth of your hand provides hope
The light from your eyes provides a bond
And here I am, writing about us
Still excited and alive, glad for my place
In your life and yours
In mine.
