Letter to Joy

I still recall our first meeting. I was taken by the way the light danced on your golden hair. Your picturesque figure silhouetted, cast shadows. In a room full of people, suddenly it was just you and I. It felt as though I had lost my balance. As I held your gaze it was if a lance had pierced my heart.

In that moment I felt as a newborn child looking out for the first time. Was it possible to be in love in a fraction of the moment? You were such a graceful conquerer. for when you touched my hand all of the hurts and anxiety of my past fled. 

My dearest, I have loved you from that very moment and will continue until the breath leaves my body. 

I see the perfection in you that I had grown blind of so many years before. How could I ever be worthy of you? 

I had been asleep my whole life, but you had awakened me.

Forgive me for the smile on my face when you spoke your name, it was so appropriate. Joy
