Your mother always told you it’s a blessing,
To love with such intensity you make the stars quiver,
Question their power in your hearts presence,
You bring the day to its knees every night,
Make the stars and the moon collide,
But when our love combined,
It set the world on fire.
The first time I told you I love you,
The words spilt from my mouth,
Like they’d been waiting to escape for years,
Now when I tell you I love you,
It sounds foreign,
Like an echo calling out from another time.
People say I left you,
You left me long before I surrendered to my broken heart.
I miss you late at night,
Whilst I’m watching the stars up in the sky,
Imagining how it must feel,
To live amongst so much light,
Wondering if you’re out there,
You taught me the power of a hot chocolate on a cold early morning,
You taught me the power of healing and moving forward,
You taught me that one look can mean I love you,
And that I should do what makes me happy even when others don’t want to,
You taught me the power of a homemade meal after a long day of exploring,
And when you left,
You taught me the power of mourning.
You feel like freedom to me,
Like the day we met something within me was set free.
The world seems to have forgotten,
That when we do not unite,
When we allow hatred and exclusion to ignite,
We kiss our future generations goodbye,
We condemn them to lives full of horror and fright,
Leaving the EU is not a new lease of life,
Donald Trump is not some harmless guy,
When will we realise,
We have seen world wide tragedies begin with such tag lines,
“Make America great again”,
Do you remember the Nazis,
They too once started out,
A political party claiming to fight for true Germans lives,
I for one do not feel content sleeping at night,
Allowing such fascism and hate to rise.
