I have found you

autumn

Open your heart, softly spoken
Who said that? No answer.
Just the wind
The rustle of leaves

Always changing directions
Never remaining the same
How will I know you?
I’ve never seen you

Again, softly calling my name
Don’t be afraid
I am not
Where are you, don’t hide

Listen to your heart
Can you hear me?
Yes, the wind within me
A whisper of love

I understand now
You are within me
Loving me
Protecting me

I can feel your warmth
The sun is shining
I reach out to touch you
I smile, I see

You are here,
Gently holding me
Keeping me safe
I have found you

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
