You came in my life
Stealthily, like air.
It seemed you were
Barely there.
But then you
Began to rise
like a sun
Colouring my skies
You kissed away
My wounds
And lit my nights
With several moons.
You taught me love
You taught me life
And you did
Make me realise
That some people
Are a work of art
Without whom, the world
would fall apart.
