The opposite of me is you.

You are a gentle giant.

I am a creature, fragile at first glance.

Look again and you will see my vitality.

We balance each other’s spirit!

I fly through time…

You trample over the land.

My song quick, I flutter, I take to the air,

I soar, not much to say.

Your fiery voice scorches all.

It soothes my soul.

The opposite of you is I.

I glistened by… you caught me and proclaimed an angel!

My wings wrapped around your heart.

Your eyes calmed my spirit.

Friends we became,

As one, we explored the land …

Your thoughts are my thoughts.

My fears are your fears.

Our needs are ours’.

My purpose is to take care of you.

My friend be at peace.

I hover around you, handling you with care!

I watch over you and color your dreams…

My wings flutter at your sight.

I soar all around proclaiming my love, or announcing my discontent - your gentle silence quiets my mind.

You are the dragon who found a friend and I am the dragonfly that flew into your heart!
