She gives you something that you will have forever
Like a good teacher- the kind you get when you’re young.
She leaves you
With lingering wonder
And a love you’ve only ever read about.
She holds you with her kind eyes
Cradling your head with soft hands
And she is always cold
But you would never know
Because she is always warm
She brings you into a new world
With bright green grass and a yellow sun.
There is no moon there
Because not everything can be warm back
But there are clouds
The kind of clouds that look fake.
She has the kind of heart
That you won’t believe is real.
Her love lingers,
It grows but never collects dust
And even in the briefest moments
You can spot her changing both worlds.
