When all but darkness had abandoned me …You remained.
Patient strength and unfailing endurance.
When others saw grief overwhelming and broken irreparable pieces,
You saw through to dormant possibility and unlikely beginnings.
When others declared only torment reigning and wasted potential,
You uncovered almost imperceptible mending and dreams not ready for the light….yet.
How is it you have lingered past all the endings?
How is it you have not deserted this stubborn child for some milder, more amiable host?
How is it, my most faithful companion, you came to choose me…and stay?
