anam cara

anam cara
soul friend

the one
who phones
in the moment
you think of them

the one
who arrives
at your door
with love
in their gaze

the one
who offers
true silence
when your heart

the one
who swings
you around
your joy

the one
who is present
when you weep

the one
who helps you
rise again
in peace
that one

I’m writing a poem a day. These are drafts—not final versions.
