I Come To You

I Come To You

I come as shadows

Gently falling across the threshold

A movement in a doorway

Shifting in the twilight

I am murmurs that cling

Like an ache from another time

I am part of you

Woven into your day

Never far removed from thought

A dream lost

In the darkness of your past

I am the comfort

In the depths of endless night

I come in the pale, pre dawn light

In the silent breath of morning

I am the brief reflection

Caught sight of in a window

Or in a glassy pool

Before the ripples shatter all

The inner voice

The sounds you hear at night

I am the thought that fades too soon

The unasked question

That wakes you in the dark

I come as the whispers

And the echoes of the wind

I am there when the silence holds you close

Like hope in a long black night

I come as spring petals quicken

And ascend into fragrant flight

I come to you when summer

Hangs a sweet sun in the sky

I come with the autumn leaves

That dance in the winds of my breath

I come with the thick blanket of winter

With the new moon

And the fresh snow

I walk the pathway

That merges with yours

Over journeys

That can’t be marked in miles

And I am always with you

Through the tendrils of the course of time

And your heart knows

What never ends

Needs no beginning
