Poetry 101 Rehab: Found

badge-rectangle

This week’s prompt: Found

Shutting my eyes was so easy

I thought: Why not.

Block out any ambition

You have lost so often

That pain you can do without.

So I did and wandered in my own wilderness

Removed from people

Living isolated

Safe and secure

No threats

I was ok.

Then you popped up

I wasn’t looking for you

But you surfaced all the same

A few idle words here and there

No thoughts of pursuit.

Now I am lost without you

You have lit me from within

Taught me to love

To accept

And above all, to trust.

I can never repay you

Only love you

Reach out

Knowing you are there.

I am amazed each day

That you have found

What I thought could

Never be found.

    Beautiful poem: the idea that we can hope for second chances, especially when we least expect them.
