This Poem By Annabelle Blythe About Loving Someone Is Highly Poignant

It’s not often that you come across a literary work on the web which just captivates you with its palpable charm and an honest heart. That’s exactly what happened when, I, wandering through the chaotic white noises on the various online platforms, came across this poem by Annabelle Blythe. It took me a while to find her on Facebook, but when I did, I was left mesmerized by the sheer force her words contained. They were universes in themselves. I couldn’t help but write something about her. But then I faced an interesting conundrum. How do you describe something that so beautifully describing something else? After a while, I decided I had just to show the poem rather than say anything about it. So here it is. A beautiful poem by Annabelle Blythe which rings true to the lonely heart.



I hope he calls you in the morning
after a night of sleeping in a big, empty bed
Just to say good morning
Just to hear your voice
as it is the only wake up call
he needs.


I hope he cooks you breakfast
Knowing how you like your eggs
how you take your coffee
how little or how much you wish to speak.
I hope he cooks you dinner, too
For no reason at all.

I hope he holds your hand proudly
as you walk through a room
of people you don’t know.

I hope he builds you upgiphy
until you are standing on a pedestal
of your own creation.

I hope he encourages you to make art
take risks
travel the world
be alone—
always knowing that you’ll be back
home in his warm embrace
as long as his heart is open.

I hope he wears his heart on his sleeve
and is not shy
to adorn yours
as well.

I hope he is the kind of person
who, when presented with the ocean,
will not shy away
from diving in
to ride the waves.

I hope he is all of himself
unafraid to own
his stories
no matter how dark they may seem.

I hope he can see that all of you
is in the stars
poking through
the dark sky
of your past.

I hope he is not scared
by your ability to choose growth
your ability to not be held hostage
by the person you were yesterday
last week
last year.

I hope his attention span
is as long as every word
that exits your mouth
your heart.
I hope that he hears your truth
and meets it with gratitude
for your vulnerability.

I hope he loves you
in a way you didn’t know love existed.
For you have only seen love
in other places
with shaky ground that fell
beneath your hopeful feet.

This is who I hope
for you—
Because you are worthy
of being loved
by a heart so bright
the sun blushes
in admiration.
