The Kind Kindle of Candle Hearts

Avatar Author: Tad Winslow "If you don't work nothing will." Maya Angelou Read Bio

The wax of kindness
Melts warm drips

Purely
The finest
For famined lips

First kissed
By its
Clean water sips

I’m simply blessed to persist

Each time I see my miss
I’m completely in bliss—

You’re the only one I’ve ever truly missed—

Let me hold you and touch the pulse on your wrist
As we drift

And all else can fade
As we wade
In waves
That tap on our skiff
Like a comforting laugh
Soft and hushing ‘what if’
Just sloshing a bit

Snuggled in sleep.

    Aww! That is so sweet! I love the line “You’re the only one I’ve ever truly missed.”
    Whoever (if anyone) you are writing for/about is very lucky. :)

    Beautiful. Not quite love but adoration, and completely sweet in tone.
