The sun shined its kindness upon my face,
& in that moment I saw the way
I could see the world.
The wind it blew me,
5 from the east & lifted me
Right up from my knees.
Leaving me shackle free from your shadow.
I no longer see your halo.
If my mind could sketch some words,
I still don't think id have the courage to say,
That there was never beauty in your halo.
Only ever in the coldness of your shadow.
But like the newly sighted,
I'm blinded by colour
Everything slurs & blurs.
Yet one image is still crisp,
& it's still clear
That it's beyond my surroundings.
It's in my eyes. It's in my heart
& it's singing through my ears.
It was begging to whisper the way.
So I had to let go.
My heart could not stay.
Even through my tears,
I left a note under your leaves.
"oh dear willow tree,
If your heart ever wonders
where on this earth I could be,
Find the warmth of your heart.
& there I shall be."
Signed. Sincerely me.
