Silver Lining

“Your heart drew me in
like a moth to flame.
And darling, I’m never looking back.”

Your heart drew me in like a moth to flame. It was your warmth. Your generosity. Your inherent belief that there’s always a silver lining. You see, it’s that optimism of yours that made me realize that I have the choice to see the world through your eyes. To see the beauty beneath the ruin. The hope in the darkness. And darling, I’m never looking back.

And that gift is priceless.

Thank you for having
a heart worth more than gold.

This was written for day eight
of November Notes.
