Favorite Quote:
"Everybody wants to be happy, nobody wants to be in pain, but you can't have a rainbow without any rain."

You found me wandering down a broken road,
My past holding me down like the heaviest load.
I was drowning in my own tears,
Overwhelmed by my deepest fears.

You took me by the hand,
Lifted me up and taught me to stand.
You showed me that all my assumptions were wrong,
That I'd been in pain for far to long.

You took the time to gain my trust,
The first to show me more than lust.
You helped me off the wing track,
Looking, past everything I lack.

You taught me to love;
Turned a falcon into a dove.
Now I freely give you my heart,
Embarrassing my lifes true start.

The author's comments:
This piece was inspired by my boyfriend, who came into my life after years of being abused and mistreated by all the men in my life (starting with my father). He showed me that I was worth so much more than what I was doing to myself, and treated me the way I deserved to be. I hope the readers realize that no matter how you've been treated, what you've done or been told, or where you are in life... You deserve love and happiness, and it will find you.
