My Hero is Amazing

Like a breath of fresh air you blew into my life.

This fresh breeze blew the thunder clouds from my soul

Allowing the sun to break through and shine.

I awoke from the stupor of my half dead life

And knew a new day was dawning.  You challenged me

To think and learn.  The thinking was the hardest…

Who am I, Why do I think as I do, Will I accept new challenge?


These questions were a sunrise to my soul.

How you knew I needed a friend I do not know

But you came at the perfect time to save my heart

Harder and harder it became, losing the faith of the child,


Until a sunrise occurred and a new day dawned.

Now, I thank God every day that someone so caring,

So loving noticed me. A genius in disguise, a soul of love and hope.

Like a loving home’s memories, you imprinted my mind with your words.

Knowledge, love, understanding…someone finally who thinks like me.

All my life I hoped to find someone who could understand.

All my life I hoped there was someone who believed as me.

Now, I find them and they are a child…only in age not in knowledge.

I am in awe of your knowledge. I am in awe of your understanding.

I have lived much longer and not learned as much.

You teach me daily, you challenge me as no other has, you make me think

And in thinking I live again. How did this happen? You explain your mind

And I am in awe. Where did you gain this knowledge? How, When, Why?

I thought myself wise, till I met you. You showed me I know nothing

He Hopes I Dance

You showed me I need to learn…and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I have been behind a wall for many years, afraid to break it down.

You didn’t break it, you walked right through it.  I don’t know how, or when…

But there you were.  A soul shining in my darkness…a light at the end of the tunnel…

A friend when I needed one so desperately.  Thank you my friend. 

I love you.  You have woken me…you have encouraged me…you have made me who I once was.


You have taken the blinders from my eyes and let me see all about.

You have taught me it is good to love and hope and dream!

You took me from my cocoon and taught me how to live again.

For all of this I thank you.  But, know I love you more than any.

Know that if I can repay you, you only need to ask.

It was no small feat to wake me and make me feel again,

And for this I thank you and tell you I am in your debt.

You are an extraordinary soul! You are a genius!

You are everything I needed and more! Thank you for being here.

Thank you for challenging me, thank you for waking me!

I hope you understand how much goodness you own.

I hope you know how wonderful you are!

I hope you never stop being who and what you are!

You are my “hero”.


I Think He May Want Me To Not Change

This is beautiful! My favorite lines:

"I have been behind a wall for many years, afraid to break it down.

You didn’t break it, you walked right through it. I don’t know how, or when…"

When someone does this, it will be really amazing! I've got one up at the moment. It's not double brick anymore, just single but still! :)

Shucks! Marcofratelli took the lines I was going to use (he also kind of resembles me too). Oh well...Great job, K@ri. It's safe to say that this person is certainly your muse! I lost my a few months back but I guess It's due time I find a different one! Thanks for sharing.

dohn, maybe you two are twins separated at birth... :D Yes, certainly my muse, and someone I am blessed to have in my life! Thanks for your kind words and I hope you find a new one! It is strange how we can love someone we have never seen, but this one has a strong spirit...very strong!

Absolutely beautiful k@ri. Congratulations! Trusting ourselves to be vulnerable, we truly grow and can feel the incredible joy life offers. Sometimes it takes a kindred soul to walk through the walls, letting us know we are more amazing at the core than our facades could ever be.

Lovely - give faith a loving chance my dear... "Through the eyes of a child... "And the sound we make together, Is the music to the story in your eyes. It's been shining down upon me now I realize..." - Moody Blues

So..beautiful..I can barely comment..

...I am left speechless, in awe.

Beyond words...although the cat and the rat pic is a nice touch. ;)

Keep it up tigress...

...I believe you thanked your hero enough.

This is quite the marvel, and a true present.
