Soft like Velvet

Just like flower petals you open up.  
When life is feeling empty and
Extremely heavy you are the cup  
That always remains full. You hand  

Me parts of your soul and spirit  
When mine is giving up. Your words  
Bring hope. They are my one ticket  
To the light in the darkness. Like birds  

You fly me to a safer place. So my  
Darling, I hope you never stop letting  
The words float across the page die  
Away. You are the soft and safe netting,  

Protecting everyone. You are the ying  
To my yang and the sweet to my sour. †
You are like my miracle in the spring.  
So I am thankful for you in every hour.
