The Light in the Fog (repost)

Poetry By: Ousma

I apologoize for the mishap with my last post, something went wrong with it, and I blame Booksie. Hopefully this one will not have any problems.
Accompanying music: Capri by Colbie Caillat, Bella's Lullaby by Carter Burwell, and There Goes My Life by Kenny Chesney. Also, a special thank you to Ann Winters and her poem "Night Light", which offered me inspiration to write this when it appeared on my English final.

I can see you there

Shimmering somewhere in the shifting abyss

Inviting me with little hands

Materializing, then with a twirl disappearing

Leaving my heart warm

And my cheeks full with a smile

I hang on to this flickering daydream

Like the sunshine dancing on the ocean waves

I imagine a voice sweet as a river of honey

Calling my name- a title

Only you can call me

Your laughter will be a waterfall

Thundering down a valley; unstoppable

Carving into hearts, just as the water

Melds and shapes the stone

The cool refreshing spray

Alighting on the cheeks of passerby

Your smile will match the sunlight

Warm and full of life

Occasionally the clouds will hide it

But they are just clouds; they never stay for long

Gypsies of the sky

Moving like the stars

You'll dance laps around my heart

And light up my world in the deepest dark

Glowing with your own inner flame

I hope I will have the patience

To help you channel your boundless energy

Into the passions and actions

That will make you unique

More so than any fingerprint ever could

I hope I remember

To always hug you

Like it's the last one

And I will hold your hand

Until you push it away

Because you don't need me anymore

I will give you my mother's understanding

And my father's guidance

Her love of people

And his love of nature's quiet

Just maybe I'll give you

A little piece of me too

To take with you as you grow

Stretching up on tip-toe to reach the moon

Like you once did to get the cookie jar

I just hope that piece is worthy-

Worthy for the puzzle that is you

In this quiet niche in the world

Where I contemplate life's wonders-

Including you-

I consider the sphere of space

Floating above my abdomen

You're already there

Waiting for that spark

That you will seize and give fire to

Just waiting to fill that bubble

With your endless plain of potential

I can see you there

A dazzling light in the undulating fog

I can't quite make out the details

For with every step I take

The future; it shifts and changes; rippling

But yes, you are there

And I am here

Someday… someday we shall meet

Two planets in orbit

Passing by
