The Gratitude

by vermismeridiem

I am so very

Glad

 

To have

Heard the echoing

Chimes of

You—

 

Permeating

My waking thoughts,

And lulling me

Daily into

Pacified sleep.

 

Are you

Shaking your head,

Deeming me

No more

An easily seduced

Fool?

 

I am simply

Grateful

To have known

The very existence

Of you,

 

Teaching me

In your absence,

The liberating rescue

Of the unselfish

Kind of love—

 

To cradle it gently,

And not suffocate its

Divine flame

In a  possessing grip.
