National Poetry Month

In honor of such, I am sharing a couple of my own.

Daily Symphony

Each day plays a song

calls to my heart

& tugs at my soul

Singing softly:

“Embrace life

Embrace love

Face your fears

Be strong”

Hours go too quickly

moments gone

I close my eyes

and hear

birds

wind

river

Life is singing

symphonic

and I refuse

to turn a deaf ear to it

-Cass Smith

Aria

Throughout my life

so many times

I heard the songs of love

but never could hold the rythym

close to me.

You were a prayer

softly whispered on my lips

that’s how i’m certain

that you are a gift to me.

Your love has put music

in my heart

and the melody plays

continuously in my soul.

Like an artist’s brush

you have carefully stroked my whole life

creating a painting

depicting a forever love

no matter if we’re

running in the rain

laughing

or holding each other through the night

I wear your love

head to toe covering me…

giving me strength

and feeling so completely

uninhibitedly safe from harm

and very loved.

You have all of me, my love

for always.

~Cass Smith
