Take My Hand

by Monique "Deep Inside" Hughes

You appeared in my life out of nowhere
At a time when everything was just a blur
Unfocused, and out of sync
I barely could think
I didn't recognize your handsomeness
Your charm, your style, and that winning smile
For I was too caught up in my own  topsy turvy
Blindsided by love
Heart totaled and damaged,
and what appeared to be a total loss
I was numb
In pain - so much so, that I could no longer ache.
I was an empty shell - just empty.
You tried to share your glowing light to me
But my  sunshades were on I couldn't see
 I feared your illumination 
I thought you were just a hallucination
 Darkness is what I had accepted.
As time went on, I walked into the sunlight
With you
My coldness shedding - I embraced your warmth
And found comfort in your presence.
However by the time I realized what gift I was
Given with you
You were gone - and I didn't know what to do
I had fallen in love
You  had become my friend
My confidante
My lover
And the keeper of my heart
And a benefactor to my soul
Since we have been  apart
No matter how many passed in and out of my
There was never any real connection
When I look in the mirror, I see only your reflection
For you are a part of me - the other half to myself
The north to my south, and the east to my west
It's with you when I feel at my best
Take my hand, my life…and let's journey
This world together
For the rest of our lives
I find ultimate pleasure in being your wife.
I love you.
Take my hand
Be my husband, my king.
Take my hand
Together we can do all things
