Pictures of you

A Morning like this

On a morning like this
when the sun peeks over the horizon
with warmth and grace
I awake alone
again

waiting for our paths to cross
on a morning like this
when the air smells of hope

My heart is incomplete

Mariya

Mariya

Who has come into my life when i wasn’t looking
Who has broken my walls before i put them up

Mariya

Who has known me before I’ve known her
Who smiles an infectious smile

Mariya

Who I want to know like the grooves in my hand
Who I want to love like I’ve never loved

Who is
Mariya

They don’t love you like I do…

Her smile lights up rooms
tenderness hidden behind layers of protection
she was mine
once
I was careless with our love
as a child who’d never learned
once
that smile was feet from me
I like to think I was the reason for it
sometimes
Separate paths once again
we walk
that smile
I’ll never forget
How butterflies were common
because of her
once
