You Are My Soul

You are my soul.

Without you life does not 
Breathe or bring 
Existence to all the 
Colors that surround and 
Circulate my being.  

I know we have been 
Connected long before time was 
Time and wrong became right.  

My Dearest, 
Meaning has become 
Real, reliable, dependable—
Like no other tangible thing 
I could ever trust to know.

In you, I have found 
My left and right, 
My east and west, 
My direction, 
My compass
In a world where I would surely
Be as lost as the stars searching 
For salvation from the deep 
Dark space that surrounds and 
Encloses them.  

Please find all the comfort and
Compassion in knowing that you 
Have and will always be— 
And what forever 
Will always be, 
That certain limitless character 
Who has shaped 
My past, 
My present, 
My destiny.

You are my soul.

    Mike, This one is good. Too many people have trouble loving themselves these days. I guess it could stem from too much "dissing" in jokes that reach beyond laughter. Great poem. Reading your poetry today has lifted me. Thank you for sharing your words. Keep writing. And thank you for your comments on my poetry as well. Have a super Day! Lovingly, Dane Ann
