Their Love

Like the moonrise

they brightened my earth.

They showered my darkness.

All the little seeds I’d planted

of love and waiting,

they shined on.

They watered my garden

of lilies and willows

and bloomed them into more.

Giving. All they did was give.

They gave me their smiles

with open arms,

and they excused my absence.

They told me I was enough.

They nurtured me back to whole

and gave me the best gift:

they gave me themselves.

And in my garden

where I kept my loved ones

to spark like wildflowers,

where I was kept as a wallflower,

they took me and placed me

in the midst of it all.

They took my gloom

and reminded me

that this kind of love was enough.

And after time,

it became a shower of light.

You would never have known

it was night.

Psalm 136:9
