when i whisper your name

when your name leaves my lips,

emotions rejoice.

in a season when wool socks and gloves won’t ever be a bad idea,

you are the peace i seek in a world of the fast and furious.

when i whisper your name,

i can see you in my breath, and you evaporate into the night sky.

i wake somedays, and on some nights, fall asleep with you on my heart, mind, and soul.

knowing that i am more than your friend,

i carry your love with me.

i am more than your lover, more than your sister, more than your mother, more than your daughter, more than your niece, more than your grandmother.

i am more than a dream and love to whisper your name.
