Vivid and joyful

Your smile and your voice

In the darkness that surrounds me

My world was lit up

Your words like rivers

Of emeralds and gold

Gave so much strength

That change occurred

The touch so soft yet firm

When you lifted me up

A wave of happiness and warmth

Made me feel light as a feather

Flying with joy

Feeling well and free

Fully aware that

This can never be

It’s not for me

You have your home

And for one little moment

You let me in

Please, won’t you stand

On my shoulder and remind me

Of this

When doubt is in control

Thank you so much

For lifting me up

For being a ray of light

In the dark
