You are the wilderness in me,
uncharted and untamed.
Your tenderness crashes like a river around my heart
and your words spike the mountains of my heartbeat.
You are the freedom of the ocean
whispering inside my wanderlust soul.
You help me discover things about myself
like paths not yet taken through the trees of my past.
You touch every piece of me with an unfathomable love
like the sun caressing the first new growth of spring
and coaxing it from the earth.
I come into my own,
wild and free,
new life breathed into me
by a love I’ve never known before.
