like dawn, like dew

{ love poem to my friends}

i love you like the breath i was born with, you are the song i move with.
this poem in my bones is for you
you make me feel like sky, like honey, like red soil in my homeland feels on my feet
i love you like dawn loves to yawn good morning
like dew loves the blades of grass she always returns to
the moment you enter my arms, i feel at home, i feel like who i always was but needed you to remind me, you give me hallelujah and amen all day
you bring me bliss without even trying and i love you
with a tremendous tenderness these words don't do justice.

You know, I feel kinda bad for folk that aren't your friends cos they don't get awesome soul-rocking poetry like this. I also kinda want to taunt them for not being as lucky as me, lol.
