Invisible Kisses

Invisible Kisses

The vulnerability being offered to you has to sink in. Your tears will be dried, the world will be made brighter, you will be made whole and safe. So simple. So real. The vulnerability being offered to you has to sink in. Your tears will be dried, the world will be made brighter, you will be made whole and safe. So simple. So real.

Invisible Kisses

If there was ever one Whom when you were sleeping

Would wipe your tears When in dreams you were weeping;

Who would offer you time

When others demand;

Whose love lay more infinite

Than grains of sand.

If there was ever one

To whom you could cry;

Who would gather each tear

And blow it dry;

Who would offer help

On the mountains of time;

Who would stop to let each sunset

Soothe the jaded mind.

If there was ever one

To whom when you run

Will push back the clouds

So you are bathed in sun;

Who would open arms

If you would fall;

Who would show you everything

If you lost it all.

If there was ever one

Who when you achieve

Was there before the dream

And even then believed;

Who would clear the air

When it’s full of loss;

Who would count love

Before the cost.

If there was ever one

Who when you are cold

Will summon warm air For your hands to hold;

Who would make peace In pouring pain,

Make laughter fall In falling rain.

If there was ever one

Who can offer you this and more;

Who in keyless rooms

Can open doors;

Who in open doors Can see open fields

And in open fields See harvests yield.

Then see only my face In reflection of these tides

Through the clear water Beyond the river side.

All I can send is love In all that this is

A poem and a necklace

Of invisible kisses.
