Brand New

I lived your dream of faraway places,
Conversations of sunshine forever and smiling faces,
Your appetite for living, drew me closer to you,
Neverending adventures, with a glorious abundance of everything new
Passion for the earth you loved, with your friends high up above,
You generously filled my cup to the overflowing brim,
Encouraging me to stand up and fight to win,
Against all that pain and anxiety inflicted on me,
You spread a velvet red carpet before my feet,
As you brought to life the magic of temples, lagoons and desert sand,
Winds of change, just part of your nomadic life,
Blowing away the entrapment of isolation,
My heart sang a new tune in key,
With renewed zest, hope and love that i could see,
Laughter was always your guest,
Happiness dissolving the conflict and mess,
Safe in your arms for a while,
Giving me space to shine, with every mile,
I could breathe in the scented, intoxicating aroma of the roses you brought,
White, pink, red, golden hue and a smiling you,
The gift you gave me then was precious,
You made me feel so alive and brand new.

    Very nice elaboration about how a good soul can rehabilitate a disturbed and unorganized life to a normal and peaceful one. Kudos to that boy friend and his good soul.

    They say sentimentality makes bad poetry, but there are some lovely images here that make beautiful music. When was this anyway?
