It isn’t often that I dedicate one of these challenges, but with all my heart and soul, I dedicate this one to the lady that makes my life worth living. She has taught me more in almost 5 years than I learned in 52. Not only about life in general, but about love and about myself.
She is my best friend, my confidant, my lover, my partner and without her, I would be lost.
I remember not long after we met, someone asked me if I loved her more than life. At the time, I had been a cancer survivor for just over 6 years and I knew (and still do) what love of life is. But to me, the answer was so simple and if I was asked today, I would respond with the same answer … “I love them both the same.”
Current, Season, Trial, Memory, Light, Darkness, Sleep, Wistful, Candlelight
Sleep falls upon me
as I face my trial.
Locked within my memory
amongst the wistful dreams
lays the darkness of the battle fought.
Will I lay eyes on that,
the flickering, shimmering
reminder that life is mine,
As the season of Yule
and sleep flows like
a tidal current.
Thoughts of you keep me fighting.
