I recently discovered a truth I never knew;
Found only by chance; by chance I met you.
Sharing words of comfort; offering a needed hand;
someone who has been there, able to understand.
Now I can begin to accept who I really want to be;
To lay down defenses that kept me from being me.
Far to go; at least there is hope of forgiving grace;
I now have a foundation; to build a brighter place.
Accepting who I am; letting go of all the guilt and pain;
I have nothing to lose and now have everything to gain.
For this revelation of truth; I have to thank you today;
In the only way I can; by writing down all I want to say.
You'll know who you are; no need for offering up a name;
Just know instead of a spark of light, you havelit a flame.
Burning in my spirit; this flame will continue to light the way;
Not the person I want to be as yet; but I'll get there one day.
