To My Friend and Love

The skies are blue, but deep inside
I feel an ache my eyes can’t hide.
The cloud of tears my being holds
awaits release, the wind unfolds.

My body’s hot from holding in
mounds of fear and grief within.
But you walk in and share your smile,
you draw me near and pause awhile.

The comfort felt from all those years
allows my pain, expressed through tears.
You know me, yet you love me still.
Listening, caring, emptiness filled.

Suddenly, I see the sun.
You know that you’re the only one
to help me through, to calm my heart.
You’re always here, never apart.

And when God takes my breath away,
and life presents a different day,
where peace will fill my lonely soul,
know it’s you who kept me whole.
(Puzzle piece number 22 of 38.)
