What you mean to me









Have I told you what you mean to me?
How the glint of brilliance in your eyes forms tears within mine when they meet.
The warm cafe color that hugs a soul surrounded by the gleaming white light of innocent pure love.

Have I told you what you mean to me?
With your silly little sideways grin that moves the earth to shake the laughter out of a body.
The words like honey that soothe someone from the hoarseness of the outside world.

Have I told you what you mean to me?
How your presence is a snugly cozy to wrap around keeping out the frozen hearts.
Your movement so delicate and cautious to convey the importance of one's existence.

Have I told you what you mean to me?
That having met you I am better.
That knowing you I am stronger.
That seeing you makes my heart joyful.

Have I told you what you mean to me?
I know I should have, but it was so hard. The words choked in my being.
The thoughts jumbled over each other until they turned to scribbles on the brain.

I should have told you what you mean to me!
It took the sight of your photo years later to appreciate your special gifts.
Only to realize I might lose you moved my heart to break out of its trepidation.

I will tell you what you mean to me!
You are life to my life. You brought life to my family.
You continue filling our lives with light.
Inspiration of life itself.
