I keep wondering
How you could love
A person like me
So unconditionally
Though the light blinds me I won't retreat back to my shadows
Love floods my heart

You reached for me
With outstretched hands
And I shied away
But you stayed waiting

You said take I'll lead you into the
Future of your life
I promise to show you your true self hidden deep inside let's
Break away your shell
Frightened I reached up for your hand

I keep wondering
How you could love
A person like me
So unconditionally
Though the light blinds me I won't retreat back to my shadows
Love floods my heart

Slowly
My eyes break free
And then I blink
Tears of joy away

Come and follow me you needn't fear
What that might bring by your side I'll be
Do you trust me you asked me so gently
I smiled and took the chance
With my heart still racing

The veil falls behind me
The world's beneath me
What is this
This new thing that I'm feeling
Though the light blinds me I won't retreat back to my shadows
Courage fills my heart

Help me
Find the meaning behind my feelings
Though the fear holds so strong
I have so much to learn but I know there's nothing to fear
With you by my side

I keep wondering
How you could love
A person like me
So unconditionally
Though the light blinds me I won't retreat back to my shadows
Love floods my heart

Help me
Find the meaning behind my feelings
Though the fear holds so strong
I have so much to learn but I know there's nothing to fear
With you by my side

Tell me
What is the meaning of these feelings
Have I done something wrong
The tears fall my heart aches but there must be nothing wrong at all
Because you're by my side

This is a very beautiful and moving poem. It is so positive and hopefull. You are an insightful young man Jake, and you apparently have a gift for writing poetry.

Thank you for sharing this with us. You have brightened my day.

Damn Jake, this one hit so close to home for me when I first read it last week I had to come back to it again!

The tears this powerfully beautiful poem bring to me are mixed with joy, sadness & hope. Joy becuz I have a wonderful wife who's stuck with me for almost 23 years and always will. Sadness becuz I've been so unable to be truly intimate with her. Hope becuz I am slowly becoming able to quit wondering why she loves me & has stayed with me waiting, and just receive her precious gift of love.

I hope you have loved ones who are by your side to give & receive the gift of your love. Do know that you are loved here, brother.

Obviously, so is your poetry. You do indeed have a gift for writing poetry. As Matt said, this poem really shows how we as survivors can be loved by others. And you are loved!

Thanks Jake & take care

Wuame
