She picked him up from the shore,
Like a shiny shell for her amusement,
Like a distraction from her hell,
Like a pebble to be thrown away.
But his heart wasn’t shelled in stone,
It rode on the wind,
Smiled in the rain,
Danced for joy,
Rejoiced for wonder.
Naivety was his fault,
Her poison charmed words,
Enchanted him to blindness.
she left him lighter,
As she took away herself,
But he stayed naive,
And let her pick him up again.
Now he was a treasure,
Hurt but stronger for it,
He was strong for forgiveness,
For empathy and kindness.
They tread untrodden paths together,
They adventured through the sky,
They lived among the lions,
Until They parted ways.
No anger no hatred,
Simple bittersweet sting,
All that now remains,
Is what ifs and remember whens.
They are but a moment
In this ephemeral infinity,
And now you are witness to that moment,
In which they lived and loved and died.

As she sat and looked around,
What do you think she found?
She used to be a happy light,
Oh yes she did too shine so bright!
Somehow on her journey here,
She was robbed by doubt and fear.
She lost her laugh, she lost her smile,
The twinkling eyes have hid a while.
Now she sees what she has done,
How she blotted out her sun,
How she had stopped being kind,
How she tormented her mind.
Now she wants to love again,
Her life will not have been in vain.
She is wiser now, beyond her years,
Seeds borne out of all her tears.
The path back up is hard and steep,
She must have faith and courage so deep,
That she has the strength to climb her way,
Out of night, into the day.
Searching for her missing part,
She has to come to know her heart,
She has to learn to love herself,
She has to learn to ask for help.
Her broken heart will start to heal,
More than ever she’ll start to feel,
Loss and pain of yesterday,
Will help her get back on her way.
The bright little soul will soon shine,
As herself she begins to find.
