This week’s prompt: ‘Love is a many splendored thing’
Write from: 2nd person POV
You don’t know the thrill I received
When into my inbox came your card.
I didn’t think you’d noticed me
But my heart leapt the second I saw you.
Christmas does that doesn’t it?
Allows us that one time to reach out
And you did and I hoped you might again.
But nothing after that for some months,
Just polite banter on the words I wrote
Until one day you again wrote and here we are.
I know I was always attracted to you
There was something about you.
You showed such an understanding to my cause
When in fact you had no life experience.
You made that clear that you were an innocent
But you saw my cause as being of merit
A worth you said that others would gain from.
You have brought me alive
From a place I thought long dead,
Where the monotony of life
And I was ok with that
My lot in life I thought was cast
And I accepted as I aged that that was that.
But you have awakened me,
Shown me I can love again
But more importantly shown me I can be loved.
Within me there is a glow
Long thought extinguished
But today a roaring flame.
I hang on your every word
Teaching me to love again
You are my hero.
