Uplift

The phenomenal essence of all that I am
Is what you have made me
 
I trail in your wake
A vapor,
Remains of a constantly blazing star
 
You burn through the heavens and fall to the earth
Becoming rock upon which I stand. . .
 
Rest. . .
 
Raise myself to the level of forever.
 
Letting go the hand of the child I was while
Standing on my toes peering into the face of the woman
 
You enabled me to be. . .
