Poetry: the Beautiful

By Monica C. Voskamp

 

You didn’t know

That road of tears you walked.

You didn’t know

That weight of grief you held.

You didn’t know that all would lead

You straight here to me.

You didn’t know the beautiful

That we both finally see.

 

You didn’t know

How many nights I prayed.

You didn’t know

How many times I cried.

You didn’t know how I stumbled

Through the dark parts of life.

You didn’t know the beautiful

How you and I complete.

 

You didn’t know

That sparkle in my eyes.

You didn’t know

That smile on your face.

You didn’t know the way we touch

Is like a sweet summer’s rain.

You didn’t know the beautiful

That our story would be.

 

Always believe. Always hope. Always love. ❤
