Somewhere along her life,
her heart turned cold with
broken trust and shattered hopes,
nevertheless, as hard as it was,
he showered her heart with love,
softening the dark edges and
melting her heart with a touch of love.
As guarded as she was,
he never failed to make her feel safe
when she opened up herself.
Slowly but certainly
she fell for the unfamiliar but
soothing gentleness of his presence.
Every passing day and night,
she embraces the foreign emotions,
feeling the certainty of a forever.
