The Goddess Poem

you taught me how to love again

and gave me back my smile,

you tended to my wounds

and nursed my inner child

you thawed me from my numbness

with your body heat,

transformed my violent nature

into a man of peace

you breached my barricades

when no one could get near,

you turned the other cheek

while others ran in fear

indeed you saw the good in me

and nurtured it to life,

you turned a fearsome dragon

into a gallant knight.
