Letters of Love and Respect
A Wounded Heart's Redemption
Seldom am I at a loss for words;
My emotions always so well controlled,
Impossible almost to reach the depths of my heart.
Since I've met you,
I've come to realize...
There is someone who can bring back my smile,
There is someone who makes this life I live worthwhile;
Someone who shares the same goals,
Has the same needs,
The same burning desires;
Someone who, at times, takes me to my knees.
I'm not easily humbled,
Learned early on to keep myself hidden away...
Battered and beaten,
My heart rests inside;
I, the Protector, struggle to keep it safely restrained.
I can't stand another head-on collision,
Can't bear the pain of having it all ripped apart again.
When I met you,
I instantly felt safe;
I didn't have to wear a mask,
Although haunted still by a torturous past.
In a lot of ways, you've touched my heart,
Your smile fills the world with your art;
Never have I felt such a sense of completion,
You have become my heart's redemption...
I had buried it all away,
When people said the horrible things that they had to say;
But, in one night, it all fell away,
My heart was touched in mysterious ways.
I'll always love you for the amazing person you are,
Feel blessed for having you in my life even for a short while.

An Unconditional Love for the Darkest Soul I Ever Met
I'm forever changing,
Flowing with the wavez that others create;
But I will not drown,
For I can swim...
Try as hard as you like,
I will not let you win.
I've been through a lot,
Felt all your pain;
I have no clue what it is that you expect to gain...
Men that batter women leave behind a big mess,
But watch me now;
Because I will pass all these tests...
Bend me, break me,
Try to mold me into something I'm not;
It doesn't matter because the real me will alwayz come out on top.
I'll roll with your punches, baby,
Love you until I draw my last breath...
You can't beat it out of me,
Even though you think you must.
A painful life may have been my fate,
But when I die, no one can ever say that I waz fake.
