You Are The Tenderness

You are the tenderness 
that inspires me to write
of music and poetry -
and of love, and of life.

Yours is the gentleness
in who's arms I rest;
caressed by your beauty
in who's love I am blessed.

Yours are the words 
soft and sweetly spoken,
reassuring a heart that has
been neglected and broken.

Yours is the passion
my heart often needs -
a heart that lacks courage
as inside my body bleeds.

Yours is the graciousness;
a gentle, loving soul,
who has come into my life,
and made my body whole.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Vaughan

They are all gone into the world of light!
And I alone sit ling'ring here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
