For Being Who You Are

I’ve seen majestic sunsets dipping into oceans of blue
all the colors in a rainbow each and every hue
golden valleys, plush forests from all points of view
but in it all, is what I see, is everything of you

I’ve heard symphonies played with brass and string
the wind running through trees, bird’s harmony in spring
whispers and cries and sighs that lovers sing
but nothing to compare, to what your voice can bring

I’ve tasted sweet honey dripping fresh from the comb
orange marmalade, the wave’s crest salty foam
bitter/sweet lessons when appetite did roam
but more splendid the taste, you’ve tucked in my hearts home

I’ve walked paths winding dressed luscious and green
through fields of plenty, through land that was lean
up mountains down streets by gardens pristine
but walking with you, far better, than traveled sights seen

I’ve felt fingers dancing, passion’s heart strings I’d soar
anger, sun burns, a gentle breeze sliding through opened door
a face slapped, hugs, cold showers so much more
but the feel of your presence, the one thing, I most adore

I’ve been thankful of this heart beating what life has brought so far
family, gifts of love, sight to see your morning star
friends, kind words, my tears you keep in a jar
but mostly, I just thank you, God, for being who you are
