Fading to Light

Fading to light,
Over a long winters life,
Wondering when it just might,
Thaw on a warm spring night.

Cold and frozen,
Thinking, maybe something’s broken,
Pieces, I’m constantly losing,
Causing fragmented lives to be written.

Lost and lonely,
Over a one and only,
While becoming an anomaly,
In a world that seeks normalcy.

Broken and confused,
Feeling transfused,
As the broken pieces fuse,
A heart begins to move.

Each beat growing stronger,
From a heart, you thought no longer,
Could feel the warmth of a lover,
Now feels a thaw like no other.

As the deep coldness dissipates,
Life begins to anticipate,
A second chance to participate,
And rejuvenate.

Fading to light,
Sunrise at the end of a night,
Arms wrapped tight,
Around a captivating Angels delight.

Artist's Description

This poem attempts to touch on the feelings of hope and warmth I have felt when I found that love you never thought I’d find. It’s about the darkness of losing someone you had put all your dreams into, the feeling of being alone that starts to fade when your eyes finally open to see the light of a new chance. The light of something mythical. Finding that someone that helps you make dreams come true instead if just riding along. Thank you Andrea, I love you for your faith and belief but most of all for a love that only you can provide.
