    You Are...I am

    you are the song that fills my heart
    you are my waking dream
    you're in every thought I think
    and every thought in-between

    you are the hope I held to
    through the blackest night
    you are rays of sunlight
    you are my breath of life

    you are my safe-harbor
    you're my anchor in stormy seas
    you are the peace that holds me
    you are my destiny

    you are all I longed for
    you are everything I need
    you are the smile I'm wearing
    because you've set me free

    I am not much to speak of
    a survivor of many wars
    I am very many things
    and all I am...is yours

    That gave me goose bumps, very good, and so very true, God is so good to us and he will always love us. your words are filled with inspiration and truth, keep up the good work.

    I did not write this to god, who never comforted me at all. I wrote this to my best friend and soul mate...who saved me when there was no one else. i let this comment stand for a while because generally I enjoy how people interpret my writing. But this one is too important to me to be misunderstood. There is no God, except in the sense that we are all divine...as love is divine.

    Beautiful love letter from the heart. Enjoyed the read and good write.

    Poetry is what gets lost in translation.
