NaPoWriMo ~ Day 10

The prompt for today at NaPoWriMo is to write a poem that is a portrait of someone important to you.

Eternal Thanks

Sometimes I wonder if you ever knew how deeply your presence touched me

A safe port through many storms, you were always there, arms wide

To dry my tears,  make me smile,  sit on the porch, walk in the woods, fly a kite

So many words of wisdom were imparted from your lips to my ears

Never shall I forget the way that you made me feel safe and strong

In times when the entire world was spinning out of control

And what should have been a haven was a place of tumult

Many were the days that you were the one person who gave me hope

That things wouldn’t always be so complicated and often hideous

You have been gone for much longer than I like to remember

Yet you will forever be alive in my heart, and have my undying gratitude

For what was often the only love that I felt that I had.
