    Out of an oasis of hope
    Sprung forth
    A well of refreshment

    I’ve contemplated
    The wisdom of fate’s
    Bringing us together

    You and I

    In my wildest dreams
    Never did I imagine
    We were to be

    When the moment came
    And you asked to come in
    …out the rain
    of broken hearts
    {and empty promises}
    …to have a seat
    In tranquility’s abode

    You warmed your feet
    In front of the hearth of
    Emotional fires
    As radiant smiles
    Embraced us

    I cried

    Tears of
    “never before experienced” joy
    As my heart buoyed
    Upon the river of
    Soothing contentment

    I took you in
    …offered a bubble bath
    To accompany your wine
    …jazz and sweet tea
    as we sat…to dine

    My heart bubbled over
    When you said
    “We can do this”

    You were mine

    Out of an oasis of hope
    And dreams
    And wishful things
    Happiness came

    To me

    Tears of
    “never before experienced” joy
    As my heart buoyed
    Upon the river of
    Soothing contentment

    to thirst for something anew
    something quite not like before
    an "oasis" }serenity amid chaos..

    nicely done Baller...

    Epiphany :heart:

    sweet and simply beautiful doesn't seem to do justice to this peace...but that's what I felt when I read it...you always speak with your heart...
