The Adventure Of The First Day Of The New Year

Poem By Susan Williams

It isn't the waves of the lake
Nor is it the rush of the wind
It isn't the fresh smell of the leaves
That helps my heart soften, my friend
It's never been the rest or the sleep
It's not the dreams I often dream
It isn't the endless, sapphire sky
That sets my hardened soul free
No, it's the sound of your voice
It's the touch of your skin
That takes me past all my fears
To a place that I've never been
It is your laugh and your smile
It is your dreams, it is your smile
It is everything that you are
That heals this heart that is scarred
When my life seems like a busy mess
When it seems it will never slow down
It isn't just the music that calms
It's the feeling of having you around
Or, when I've had one of those days
Where nothing seems to go right
All it takes is the thought of your face
That keeps me relaxed at night
It's the sound of your voice
It's the touch of your skin
That takes me past all my fears
To a place that I've never been
It is your laugh and your smile
It is your dreams, it is your smile
It is everything that you are
That heals this heart that is scarred
