- Sweet jewel of light -


There are no words

That describe the pulse

In my chest

When i see you smile.

The light in your eyes,

The wave of goodness

that washes over

Everyone you touch.


Sometimes I wish they knew

What you went through

To arrive where you are

How proud they’d be 

Of all you’d overcome

The aches of fire

On your insides

Like an extension of me.


Felt in the depths

Of my being

I’ve cried for you, 

Our tears like jewels of light

That helped me

Find my way back to you

To us, to honour

Our unbreakable bond


And all our 

Invisible scars

Known not 

to seeking eyes

But kept safe

Within our hearts

To remind us

Of our resilience.
