The Seasons of You
I saw it the first time we met
Your face like a spring day; youthful, fresh,
A blossoming smile like new leaves unfurling
Tasting the spring air for the first time.
Your eyes as clear as two new born stars
Radiating into my head like fork lightening
I knew then that I would spend my life with you.
Your personality emanating like summer
It was like laying down in a field of poppies
Under a lazuli sky; carefree
Breathing new life into me.
Then as your illness got worse; it was like autumn
Slowly watching your leaves fall one by one
But even at your worst I have never heard you complain
So thankfully you have no winter
I remember carrying you up the stairs for the first time,
You were in great pain,
As I looked into your eyes, it was spring all over again!
