Little by Little


I’ll admit I’ve been depressed

Tears streaming down my face

Dark eyes and deep scars

In my heart and mind


Salty drops and gloomy words

Soak, spoil, and dampen

My writings

My drawings; my music


Smiles left in pictures

From long ago

Laughs locked in video

From many weeks before


Except for with you


With you your smile is mirrored

In my mending soul

And on my mascara-stained face

Tears evaporating on spot


With you my laugh returns

To show you my content

To show you what

You mean to me


You are what holds my happiness

And my trembling hands

Loving and kind

Warm and Gentle


You save me

Little by little

  • Cheeky Missy

    It is very sweet, with a tinge of bittersweet, for the bitterness of your sorrow, but whoever is comforting you is making it sweeter....that is very nice for you. You portrayed the situation well, from your sadness to the tender heart and hand (so like your profile image) that is sweetening your life.
