I WISH FOR YOU.
In the darkest corner of your heart or soul
where you have huddled for safety,
I wish for you an offered friendship.
Even if your heart has been broken into slivers so sharp you almost dare not move,
I wish for you the courage to slip your hand into a warm grasp
and know you have been met.
Let us not ask for perfection.
Let us know that love more precious than gold binds you back into a shimmering shape reflecting all that you are.
That gratitude for the moons glow,
or the shiver of silver beech leaves in the breeze,
Is a peace you can wrap about yourself,
Once your eyes have been opened.
I wish for you, a rest and an awaking into warmth,
More moments of companionship than solitude,
More kindnesses that stir remembrances of your glory,
No matter the emptiness you have believed for so long.
I wish for you a foothold on a hillside where the view opens out like a glorious dream before you.
A coming home to the loveliness of you,
That shines through your tears, and turns your scars to jewelled badges of honour .
My gift to you
Is my wish for you
That you come back to you
To the magnificence of you.
Nothing can compare with you.
