my love song to you…

I wish that I could write you a love song
a simple tune that would run through your head
whenever it is, you need to be
soothed
or bolstered
or
saved
I wish that I could offer you hope
a simple lift to your spirits
to raise you up
or to see you
through
to give you light
when all feels dim
I wish to always be the kindness
that touches your day
and makes you
smile
and when I cannot be
that
maybe I could be the friend you recognize
but never knew
you knew
or the thought that makes you pause
and see a simple pleasure
or reflection of beauty
in something
quite
small

I wish that I could offer you a warm
cup of tea
or coffee
a nice glass of wine
or something quite strong
and we could sit and watch the birds
and talk about our troubles
of the day
and we would eat little cakes
or lovely apples
and we would smile at the
sweetness
contained

I wish that we would find comfort
in each other’s company
or in just knowing
we were there
and this was enough to put
a smile on the sun

I wish that in offering up our worries
for the world
we then would let them go
and watch as they slowly vanished
into
t

I wish that when I write this song for you
you will know
always
the contents of my heart
as well as your own
and that
in this knowing
you
will recognize kindness
when it comes
and light
when it shines
that you will offer the world
something good
and not allow yourself
to be fed on fear
possibly to centre yourself in
Gratitude
and all the richness
this contains

I wish that when this song reaches you
(and even in recognizing that I am no songwriter)
you suddenly think to yourself,
I can’t quite remember
the tune

still

you
smile,
maybe you think of me
and you
and I
we together
we continue our search
for
that simple bit
of
hope ♥

on this day, this my love song to the world…
