Soulmate
8/4/2022

To me you’re my destiny and my fate

The very food that’s on my plate

The love that’s in my hate

The sun that shines upon my face

The hope that brings me back to faith

To me you’re the one that inspires me

I trust that you would never lie to me

You my sanity in a wicked place

My shelter when I need to feel safe

The very definition of my grace

To me you’re the wires that ground me

The amp that moves my bass

The speakers that’s in place

The very reason I was created

To me you’re my respirator

My defibrillator

My rescuer better-late-than-never

My endeavors

My commitment to forever

In every way you make me better

To me your worth all my sacrifices

You’re the calm in my crises

My certainty when I’m indecisive

You’re the breath I feel when I’m lifeless

To me you’re the sweet dreams when I sleep

The ground beneath my feet

The oxygen that I breathe

The conqueror of my defeat

To me you’re my soulmate

The other half of me
