Beautiful Darkness – A Love Story

Beautiful DarknessIf I open my chest,
Reaching in with trembling hands,
And if I gave you my heart.

Would you see the beautiful darkness that makes me who I am?

Trusting in your answers to my unspoken questions;

Would you hold it gently?
Would you hold it intimately?
Would you hold it carefully?

And when my breath fades;
Would you let me go,
Alone into the alone?

Will you remember the beautiful darkness that made me who I was?

You are and always will be;

That single spark,
Brilliantly illuminating the black,
Of my brokenness.

Finding you shows;
The only reasons why I believe,
My heart answers.

We fit together like;
Interlinking puzzle pieces we are,
Of dark and light.

You see the beautiful darkness
that makes me who I am.

My strong comfort;
You’re everything I need,
What I hope to be.

Your light shines;
Into the darkness of my heart and soul,
Making me a better man.

You have a beautiful darkness
that makes me who I am.

To honor my lovely wife, Carri to celebrate her birthday and my love for her, I wrote the poem above.  She knows my darkness and I know hers; and together our union has created a beautiful darkness where we both rest comfortably knowing that we complement each other.  Our light illuminates the others darkness!  Happy Birthday my love!
