you are
fingers stroking keys,
stroking
stroking hope into me
you are.

you are
sun on the horizon,
liquid for the soul
you are.

you are
prayers caressing my ears,
caressing
caressing away fears
you are.

you are
phenomenal fuel
that drives this dream,
gifting wisdom and belief
you are.

you are
angels driving demons,
driving
driving away demons called
disbelief.

oh yes, you are....oh yes, you are,
you are.

I love the form; the repetition of "you are," the flow of the piece and, of course, the idea.

It's a gift to be a reader and commenter on this blog.
