Today I want to share with you a poem which is actually a sort of sequel to a poem I shared back in April called You.  This poem is, creatively, titled You Two and is a happier ending to the tale that’s told in the first poem. The words are a play on saying ‘love you too’ but is also a great way of just saying that this is the second poem after You. 😄 This poem is only the second time I’ve ever done a double poem (one dark, one light) and I hope you like it.  If you do have the time please do take a quick read of the first poem first, which is a darker one to see why the words in this one are so important.  There are always second chances for us to be happy, even if things haven’t gone well the first time.  Have a great day everyone! ❤ 🙂

You Two

You are warm, you are happy, you are kind.
We have the same frame of mind.
You are open, like to talk, like to share.
I always know that you care.
You’re encouraging, helpful and strong.
With you I feel I always belong.
You ignore all the lonely, all the bad.
Are always there when I feel sad.
You care not where I’m from, where I’ve been.
With you I can always be seen.
You are not embarrassed by my look.
Even compliment me when I cook.
You know nothing of how I feel.
With you I’ve started to heal.
You will always be there for me.
And now I can finally see.
With you I can now feel whole.
For you love my heart and soul.
