​lost and found …



1.



i was lost,

scrambling for scraps of love, of life,


desolate, empty, my heart seemed destined to ceaseless strife,


lost in between murmured promises and yearning for free abandoned flight,


only to be cast aside in the deep dark of night.



2.



you found me,


strewn across festering boulevards,


you picked me up as i lay broken,


your love breathed life into my deadened soul, 


after all the trite words were casually spoken,


your essence,


your being, lifted me,


my heart once more in free joyous flight,


you found me,


you saved me from myself,


you ushered in spring days,


after so many a corrosive night,



you found me …
