Familiar stranger


I remember…

with all my heart – I do

how when I was down

broken and battered


how you looked my way,

gave back to me

the only thing that I held dear,

this broken piece of me,

…and you healed me

of my affliction, my contradiction

I recall you laughing…smiling

so kindly, that I became afraid

how you whispered in my ear

as I cried, as I bled 

pouring out a heartache,

and how you understood

as only you…

ever could

I remember


how can silly, fragile,

and deeply tormented souls 

as I had been, ever forget

that not every angel we meet

is able to fly?

Some have broken wings

from a life left behind, like you do

I remember…

because, in another time,

the life you left 

was also mine
