Deepest part of Winter, these next few weeks, days of darkest hours. We’ve more night and less day than any other part of this year, and through it, I will keep you safe. I will protect from the monsters, be they real or imagined, be they out there, or locked inside yourself. I will soothe, I will satisfy, I will defend with my body, my heart, with the hands that know only holding you. I will be the strength when you’re weary, I will be the lap you lay your head upon. I will fight, and I will scream, and I will stand between you and whatever you do not wish to face. Tell me where your courage ends, and I will begin mine there. Tell me when to stand behind you, and I will watch you defeat the rest.
This is beautiful. I hope to find someone to be courageous with me someday.
Love this so much. This is why we should never settle – there are people out there waiting for the right someone to give their love to, just as we are.
My goodness I don’t know what I did in my past lives to deserve you but I am so glad I did.
"Tell me where your courage ends, and I will begin mine there. Tell me when to stand behind you, and I will watch you defeat the rest." I love this whole post so much. Especially those last two sentences. I shared this with my girlfriend in Germany, and she loved it too. I'm so grateful to be able to bond with her in an intimate way, through your poetry, during this difficult covid time.
