He came to me with a heavy heart and tears of pain within his eyes,
Still quite shaken by his loved ones unexpected and untimely goodbye.
He laid his weary head on my shoulder and let me completely in,
Unafraid to show me the sadness he felt for his departed kin.
Without a moment of hesitation I wrapped myself all around him,
Heart to heart and soul to soul as he shared with me where he had been.
I hugged him even closer when he admitted to being concerned,
By the way his week had unfolded and how things had eventually turned.
I listened to his words and felt my heart begin to shed some tears,
At the pain My Sweet Man was feeling and his unexpected fears.
It was in that moment I saw just how incredibly brave he truly is,
Feeling extremely blessed by the fact that I continue to be all his.
I kept myself wrapped tightly around him until he drifted off to that faraway place,
Determined to stay right beside him and also dearly wishing that I could erase,
All the pain and worry he was feeling so that he would once again feel carefree,
Not weighed down by grief eclipsing what his eyes could currently see.
I continued to hold him close to me and softly sing to his soul,
So that he could feel me all around him and no longer feel broken, but whole.
Just as he’d done for me when my skies became shrouded in rain,
By all the death that surrounded me and kept me trapped in such excruciating pain.
Just like he had done for me in the past I simply held him close and let him be,
Allowing him to feel what he was feeling but also to know that I wouldn’t flee.
Because I knew that in this sad moment I couldn’t take away much of his pain,
But I could offer him my love and my hope that a rainbow would eventually vanish his rain.
So I continued to sing to his soul while he escaped to Dream Land,
Where I simply sat patiently beside him and gently held his hand.
Letting him feel all the love I have for him no matter what the world may bring,
By showing him that no matter what happens in life he will always be my everything.
