    You enable me
    to see
    more than color.
    In you
    I can dissect every hue
    Paint every shade
    of blue
    when I am sad
    Etch each hint
    of red
    when I'm mad
    Engrave every luster
    of gold
    when I'm bold
    Brush each stroke
    of rose
    when I pose
    an unspeakable love
    It's the One
    above
    that has allowed me
    to blossom, to flow
    But truly
    I don't know
    how it all
    will end
    The ability to express
    is a welcome friend
    in my life
    But in so many other ways
    I've crashed and burned
    far longer than just days
    but years of burning
    wildfires personally set
    and I've paid with the
    disfigurement of regret
    The internal scars hurt
    the most, an aura aflame,
    a gift wasted, dignity
    drowning in a river of shame.
    You enable me
    to see
    So that I can finally be
    Thank you....

    Glad that this comforts you, Rich. In him there is a comfort that cannot be compared or described, but I try. Thank you for responding so.

    The last few stanzas, particularly, slay me. You are the bomb, sister.
