There are flecks of light and dark and of colors to
Their hue simply as a reflection of you.
The depth of a soul is residing within
I can’t tell you about it; shit! Wouldn’t know where to begin!
But, he moves with a strength that’s impossible to ignore
It is evident from the moment he walks through the door.
The knowing tilt of a head; a shoulder so broad
Give me a minute here; fuck! Oh Lord!
Let’s forget about that – look behind those long lashes
Let’s evaluate his smile; see if it matches.
If you pay close attention you’ll detect a quiet sadness
But he’s good at hiding; hiding behind life’s madness.
It must be difficult being viewed as an object
Knowing each time they look at you you’re becoming the subject
Of their whispers, their gossip and their childish desires
I’m hoping there is a special one that for your accomplishments, admires.
We all need a safe place to rest our head
That place where it’s okay to voice our dread.
Their arms, their chest, their laps should be ours
So open and willing – letting us stay there for hours.
Life has a way of testing our smiles
Verifying our purposes and vetting our lies.
It demands that we stay resolute in our beliefs and our purpose
Seeming to turn its back on the weakest amongst us.
But it also always provides us with just what we need
Oftentimes in the most unlikely of ways indeed.
There are always people and places of peace
With encouragement, laughter and wisdom that doesn’t cease.
Please never feel the need to do this alone
When it gets too bad, simply pick up the phone.
We each have those times when it gets too much
Those moments that can be quieted by a human’s touch.
The answers will come; they always do
Be still, be quiet; He will show up for you.
Continue to live, laugh and love
Much like the rain…peace will come from above.
