When a Dear Friend Touches Your Heart: She (a poem)




stands tall.
She wears
an unwavering smile,
for though sometimes
she is willing to
brave the unknown
for beauty lingers
beneath her breaths
and she cannot help
but notice your smile
all the encouragement needed
to unleash her kindness
her fragrant scent
of unabash’ed love
and acceptance
swirling among
the dusky earth
the muted green scent
of painful growth
and forgetfulness.
Her dew shaped tears
of longing release
in their beauty
to reach
new heights
to shelter
in the sun
to add
its sweetness
to each day’s beauty.
Her fragrant scent,
her lingering beauty,
and you realize
as you step
through the meadow –
you shall never
be the same.

(c) Sumyanna 2018

Written for my dear friend Nadia who truly deserves finer words than these, but they are all I have.  May she know she leaves beauty wherever she treads and may she always have the courage to stay just the way she is.


Writer of poetry and seeker of knowledge. I hope to inspire and be inspired by my words and the world around me.
