An ode to you

On a wind-swept ocean
You were the port in the storm
On that cold winter's eve
Your fires kept me warm
On my darkest of days
You were the light in the room
In my garden of thorns
You are the rose in full bloom
When my world was an empty
And a desolate place
You filled it with joy
With a smile on your face
You could see I was broken
But put me together again
Your loving embrace
Helped to ease my pain
When I was tired of living
You were my intake of breath
You were the reason I needed
To choose life over death.

by Sean McParland
