The power of love can bring you confidence to be yourself. The real you is in there. Enjoy this post and checkout the other poems. She is great!
You found me, the real me, hidden behind the face I showed to the world
You listened. You held me when I was afraid. You helped me explore
Those fears which caused me to live behind the high barricade
You showed me my beauty which I could never before see
You taught me to laugh at the flaws I’d thought so dire
You showed me my strength and my tender heart
You taught me to work and take pride in it all
With you I laughed, I cried, I truly felt
Love and loved. For you, only you
Were my guide but I lost you
On the path we took
Written, once again, as response to a one word prompt from Fandango who has definitely sparked something in my imagination.
