Don’t Worry

She worries a lot.

There has been a lot in her life to worry about.

She has seen a lot.

Worry hasn’t stopped her.

She has tried to stop.

She will live.

She will smile.

Her eyes ever vigilant.

Though she sees the darkness.

She will forever stand in the light.

Encased

Where is your heart

Laying wast below a layer of dust

Turned to cement by tears

Fishers and bore holes

Allow for just enough sunlight

One single tulip blooms

Protected in the hard shell

A beauty unseen by the outside world

Fully matured longing

Denied an adults foresight

Naive in solitude

Injured again by bursting forth

With out thought

Only to be hidden again

A heart stunted

Cemented by tears

Love is not just a word

It is an action

A moment given

A kiss

Love is compassion

Time

A lingering hug

A helping hand

Love is not reserved

Given freely

Whether or not it is earned

A smile

A handshake

Respect undeserved

Love given speaks of the giver

Yet is not meant for the one who gave

Often over looked

Not always returned

Love is present

Through anger and sorrow

Simple to give

And can not be borrowed

Love is a choice

Not easy to make

At times it even feels like a mistake

Love is dependent on you and on me

To be truly felt it must always be free

Faithful

Know I want to stand with you

In our darkest times

I will be true

Seasons they, will come and go

Time will change us

We’ll both grow old

As our days turn into night

Even if we grump and fight

When in time our nerves rub raw

Our hearts gone cold

In time will thaw

Compassion and love

Will outlast our plight

If we just hold on

All will be right

To remember how we came to be

Our memories will set us free

The End Begins

Rain pours down

Tears from heaven

Running the ink on the page

A book to be closed forever

Washing away

Heartaches of long past stories

Drowning in puddles of hope

Erasing the records of tragedy

Making way for clouds passing

Opening to the Golden lights of faith
