For me, you are an oasis,
a friend from extreme to extreme,
close in times of conflict and need and moments of paradise;
a well-spring of rejuvenating waters,
your spirit and actions heal and sooth.
With you, I feel free as I am.
Struggles past dim to insignificance
and the future happily out of reach.
The present cradles me close.
Warm, Radiant, Whole
I am more than happy.
I know peace in communion rather than in my solitary union.
It is different and meant to be.
For me, you are an oasis
that grows more bountiful on my every return.
All journeys draw me back to your sustenance.
For me, you are an oasis of Love.
