Beautiful Fear

Posted: June 12, 2015 by gracebannister in 2015, GraceB

My love for you is miraculous,

Like the waves that crash against the glimmering shore.

Now, as I cling to the edge of the world,

As my strength slowly ebbs away,

Your memory comes to me,

– A moonbeam in the consuming dark.

I recall the way you held me:

Warming my heart and comforting my soul.

Giving me strength much needed,

to look my horrors in the eye.

And there, among the darkest of my demons –

I saw my love for you.

For that was my fear.

And as I let go of it,

I saw you.

Only you.

Always you.

Waiting to catch me when I fell.
