Because of You

Because of you:

When I open the door to the icy blast,
my brain immediately connects to Summer’s breeze.

When the bullets fly so close,
I see our home surrounded by still light.

Though the days alone are sometimes long,
I can taste the rich sweetness in my solitude.

Your spirit touches and enlarges me,
and I have learned the peace of letting go,

Because of you.
