Published Wed Feb 14, 2018 | Posted in Poetry | By Linda Jenkinson |You are the sun that pierces the clouds
And dries the teary dew.
You gave me the chance to read a page I hadn’t read.
When I couldn’t comprehend, you offered me the pen instead.
You traded laughter for my tears
When my whole world fell apart.
For this and so much more my friend,
I’ll keep you in my heart.
You stood by me as I walked a road I had not walked.
You cleared the path ahead of us whenever it was blocked.
You are the breeze that follows the storm.
You make the air seem fresh and new.
