the stature of a tree deeply rooted in the softness of the ground intertwined and entangled in nature driven by an unexplainable instinct to bear down in a soil damp with rain roots dug further to earths core a satisfaction of nature’s fulfillment an act defined by a drive all know blossoms bloom and erupt in beauty and the breeze sweeps through the branches as a breathless, tired earth breathes the ground wraps around the tree clinging in love and protection two beings now made one in one act to be whole
I crave your voice in the darkest night and your gentleness comes running to me the very second I call out to you you’ve taught me what safe feels like and you healed my broken soul I didn’t know what love was until I met you your love gives me wings I fly above the cloudy skies I couldn’t conquer but now I don’t worry anymore you’ve given me a lifetime in our short days and I hope our days feel shorter as we live our forever together from now on I promise to scream it loud scream to the world I love you I’m not blind to this feeling like I once was I embrace the love we have and I always will love you
my eyes shot open and terror gripped my bones I breathed heavily through my nose, eyes scanning my dark room. with my chest heaving, my fingers fumbled for my phone; with a click the brightness illuminated my face quickly, I found your name but I hesitated, fearful of disturbing you, bogging you down with my own horror. but I had no other choice. at that time you were my only source of calm. the dial rung one, two, three times and when you answered I felt relief. hearing your voice my breath at last evened, and my heart slowed. you comforted me whispering I was okay and you were right there. the gentleness found in your essence, I relaxed. your quiet presence held me closely under the bend of tired vocal cords. without any question you decided to stay with me and as if I had come and crawled in beside you in your bed, you planted a kiss on my head and wrapped me in your warm embrace. soothing me you surfaced the calm within me and there was no maybe in your commitment to stay. hushing, quieting, lulling and rocking me to sleep I felt your protection, I knew I was safe, and the safety in your arms will never disappear.
