Kindred Spirits

Kindred Spirits

Each morning the sun is waiting to shine upon your face

A morning jog to help, the day ahead embrace.

A warm cup of coffee, to soothe the soul

A list to check off, so you can take control.

You listen as the birds outside sing their song

During the day you find yourself humming along.

Your smile takes away even the heaviest of cares

If you could take someone’s pain, it would no longer be theirs.

There are so many different paths life takes us down

The one that had you, I’m so glad that I found.

Your spirit is gentle; your demeanor is kind,

A kindred spirit like yours, is hard to find.

Your hugs are warm, they bring joy to my heart

And keep me going when we have to be apart.

There is such an ease and calmness each time we converse

And so much to look forward to after I’m a registered nurse.

The memories, the laughter, there’s so much more in store

And each encounter we share, allows me to appreciate you more.

I can’t wait for the day I get to call you my friend

And look forward to all the time together we’ll spend.

Your presence fills my heart with bounteous glee

How thankful I am that in my life you’ll forever be.
