sets my soul on fire

lightning brings about the spark

yearning for the calm waves to wash over me 

ever so gentle rhythmic in unison with my heart beat
the lull of your breathing brings about 
a peaceful and serene plateau of joyous abandonment 

your voice, so quiet and sublime
echos in the distance far from silent ears

the gentle trickle spring you let in 
in painstaking patience
nourishes my weathered heart

unbeknown to you
the frozen particles in my being thaw in your presence
you are the heart and soul of my universe 
your spring overflows my cup
