Those carefully chosen words made me a believer.  The embedded images of your soul meeting mines for the first time has me finally seeing. Rippling cracks forming along the barrier that once protected my heart are breaking into pieces.

All these rapidly changing feelings deep within me has me lost and feeling worried. That is when you suddenly grabbed my hand and instinctively whispered the words that forever changed me.  “Where you stand, I’ll stand, we’ll stand here now and forever together.” You unknowingly corrected my vision so now I can see the layers beyond my reflection.

   You forced me to hear what’s hidden, and you taught me how to filter out the noise of my defenses. So now I hear what you hear and see what you see. The wisdom of a life well lived, I hope someday I have the wisdom to do what you did for me. To create a place where broken hopes and dreams are mended. I hope one day my life will create a sound that is heard, felt, and ultimately awakens the passions that I see in all the individuals that I’m fortunate to have around me.
