YOU ARE MY LIGHT

Recycling an old post since I am sick. This poem is one of my favorites that I have written.

SELF-REFLECTION

DAY 7

Reflecting on myself and my life has been a lot harder than I ever imagined it would be.  As I take these walks down memory lane, a lot of emotions fill my soul.  My artistic side is really beginning to shine through.  I suppose it is meant to happen this way.  I feel like I am blossoming into a new person. Or perhaps, this person was always here, I just needed to dig deep so I could find her. This poem is for my husband, who has never given up on me.

YOU ARE MY LIGHT

My heart has been broken many times before

It shattered like glass, and now it is no more.

I carry the pieces with me everywhere I go

Holding onto them tightly, never letting go

These parts that I have so preciously saved

Are reminders of a storm, once braved

I want to move on but they are weighing me down

There is darkness around me, I’m going to drown

I’m fading fast, I’m slipping away

You know I’m broken, and yet you stay

You wipe my tears, and you kiss my cheek

I feel your breath, and then you speak

You say “It doesn’t matter what happened in the past.”

“Our love is real and it is going to last.”

You hold each piece of my heart so gently with care

You mend what you can, with a love so rare

You were the sun, in the middle of endless rain

You gave me life, and took away my pain

You show me the meaning of love everyday

In everything you do, and everything you say

You were my light, when the dark closed in

I am as lucky now, as I was back then

  1. I discovered your blog through the community pool thread so I don’t know much about your background. It seems that you went through some hard times yet your husband showed you unconditional love. In our culture today, this is pretty rare. Keep up the good work on the poems, they are extremely beautiful.
    At the beginning of this post you mentioned how reflecting on yourself is hard. A way to make it easier is to ask yourself some questions and spend some time answering them. (i.e. How do you show that you love yourself? or Is your life now something that a 10 year old version of yourself would be proud of?)

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. It has been quite a rough road. Through this blog I am finding my voice, and it is so beautiful. I will certainly take your advice, and start asking myself those questions. Thank you again.
