Just another Day

Life a continual array of trivial niceties and undying philosophical queries;
Rooted within my home, family, and friends, I struggle to branch out in the world.
I watch as the days pass by and people around me continue to thrive and blossom;
I can’t help but feel withdrawn, alienating myself from comfort in company.

That is until I found her, in her immaculate beauty and stoic grace.
She spoke to me in a way nobody else could hear,
Her whispers like a soft breeze giving motion to otherwise lethargic leaves;
As she lured me away from the tranquility I found in my solitude.

She was eccentric, and approachable by all, an aura of solace illuminated from her body.
Our intertwined fate gave me hope in my own destiny,
And as she slowly wilted away;
I couldn’t help but feel a part of me die with her.

I found new strength in standing on my own, surrounded by a thicket of loved ones.
I felt lively as I grew, consoled by a warmth unseen by others,
Like a towering tree glistening as the rays of the sun fall upon its body;
I gazed upon what I used to be.
