Spirit of the Soul

                                     SPIRIT OF THE SOUL
                        

You appeared in my life like a mystic in the night and asked nothing of me.
How very strange and so unthinkable a thing to happen. I have known nothing
else but to give what was wanted but you want nothing and I don't understand
what to do, I offered and yet you declined.  For that is not what you sought
from me.  You want to know what is inside.  No one has ever asked so I do not
know how to act or what to say.

 You guided me through my deepest despair and would not let me give up, you
brought me wisdom, smiles and laughter, when all I wanted was to slip into an
abyss of nothingness. And though I have done some things I am ashamed of, it
didn't matter, for you understood why they were done and did not judge.

I still do not know what to make of you. I keep waiting for the shoe to drop or
for true colors to be shown, but as of yet all your words and actions have
been true and others have said the same of your character.  What do I do now?
You scare as much as you intrigue me.  I step cautiously for I know nothing
of this path you have led me to. You make me sparkle and shine even when I don't. 
Why do you do this? How can you care for someone like me ? I do not feel worthy of
you and yet you say I am.

I hope someday to be worthy of this faith you seem to have in me
and to be the person you see and not what I see

Anyone can make you smile or cry, but it takes someone special to
make you smile when you already have tears in your eyes
