, Knowing You Are There - Poem by Louise Tredoux

You are sweet and kind,
you make space for the
fears in my little mind,
you understand when I
explain, you help me to
overcome the mental
blocks that freeze my
thoughts, you take my
hand and keep me safe
while traversing obstacles,
you bring sunshine into
the black fears that used
to keep me immobile,
I smile and kiss your lips
in gratefulness, singing and
jumping for joy, knowing you
are there makes all the difference!

    It may not be a summary of how ideal love should be. But having someone you love and care for makes a great difference in your life, esteem and confidence (Report) Reply

    When you have someone you can lean on then you should call that a luck and thank the most high. (Report) Reply

    A partner close to your heart will provide you strength during your testing times. It is then obvious that you express your gratitude in the most humble way. Lovely poem. Thanks. (Report) Reply
