Your Presence by Deborah Ray



It was your presence in my life that changed me

you woke up the spirit that dwells in my soul

you gave lots of reasons to make life worth living

you’ve unlocked the mysteries to making me whole.


You’ve unraveled life’s knots that were tangled and twisted

with a gentleness I’ve never known

you’ve smoothed out my bitterness and erased my sadness

with the magic touch you’ve so mercifully shown.


You brought out the real passion inside of me

like a slender strand of 

fine laid gold

you planted the seeds of the woman you knew I could be

so I could step out and stand on my own.


I miss all the ways that  you would help me

how patient you had to be

you modeled the behaviors I needed to mold me

to convey the beautiful woman I know I now see.


I thank God it was you He sent to me

to face the addictions I always denied

I will cherish your memory forever

no other person has made me feel so alive!

With Love
