You Are My Escape. - Poem by Sandra jacks

I cannot write a song,
or say a word,
that would do you justice,
you do not require,

You see,
i watch the sunset every night,
and stare at the stars still within sight,
i've seen the way the people stare,
and i see them everywhere.

i often question why i am,
is my existence purposeful,
but then i think about you're wonders and i cry because,
you're the most of anything anyone could ever have,
and in this world,
I'm humbled by your calmness here, .

you lift the pressures of the world,
and i can give it all to you,
all to you,
that's what I'll do,
my father.

You are amazing and you're perfect in your silent ways,
you've shown me how to say nothing at all,
but say everything,
within your silent grace.

And i understand what i never have,
and i understand what you've done,
who you are,
why you are,
without any explanation at all.

I breathe for you,
i speak in your language,
My tongue twists and speaks words i do not know,
but it is our speak,
our peaceful way of escape,
you are my escape,
you are my escape.
