You Were Born

You were born from the ashes of my broken spirit.
Licking my tears;
Grabbing my heart with your hand.
The passion you inject into my chest
Enough songs to write for a lifetime
In every life I have found you
No matter how far
 at  the corners of the Earth
My song branded on every bone of your ribs.
Your eyes of wildflower honey;
 skin of cinnamon
The taste of vanilla that lingers after every kiss.
You were born from my fire
Rising from the smoke
Kindle that set my soul aflame
Such power I have ever seen
You were born from my wishes
Tears that marked my pillow
And etched onto my skin
You were born from my prayers
From nights of graceful cries
And visions of life.
Created and separated at birth
Connected by an invisible line.
We were born;
I was born
You were born — to love me.
