The Gift

It started with a picturesque view

Open expansive and yet unknown

The breadth and depth of canyons

Unexplored eager adventures to unfold

The precipice I leaned towards

In excitement curiosity and wonder

As with every edge we sense danger

I kept trying to pull back

Yet ever so gently you tugged

My hand to lead me to grass

I stepped back and your hands raised

To your throat as my chest rose and fell trembling

Anxiously I leaned towards you

My heart was singing

You pulled me towards Moonlight

Laughing into your arms I need you

We then went down roughly

Kayaking into the deep waters

Painful honest realities I was scared to reveal

Yet you truly remain so kind and good

What a gift I have found … in you
