I found peace in the crisp Autumn air
in the birds chirping over there
in the sun melting into my skin
in the small tingle of the wind.
I found peace in your stare
in knowing that you were there
in your efflorescent laugh when it’s tangled with mine
in the way that your fingertips fall down my spine.
I found peace in you
like I found peace in mother nature
in everything that’s true.
That’s a gift that no one could have given to me
