To Whom It May Concern

When words rise suddenly to lips unbidden,
Rendering to light what long was hidden-
When shuttered hearts once more in open air
Breathe free no longer caught in fear’s dark snare,
When weakness gives up trying to be strength
Accepting loving help offered at length,
When mind and heart at long last join together
Acknowledging the value of love’s tether,
When with clear eyes one spirit sees the other
Submitting to its call to be its lover,
When differences inspire joy and not
The fear that for so many years was taught,
Then peaceful happiness become the best
And rightful home where lovers can find rest.
