“Whatever you are physically...male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy--all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside.”
― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

You came
yet calming
and inviting.
Changing my heart
in ways that make
waking up pretty decent.

I agree with the last comment, Descent seems like the wrong word, but overall really nice, simple, sweet poem! And one that many can relate to

Being alive and living are two completely different things; the first one, you have a beating heartbeat, while the second one, you bless the world with happiness and love for peace and well-being.

Simple, yet beautiful. I would change the word "decent" into something more simple like the rest of the poem. Great poem though!
