loving you…

This is beautiful…

ellie894

When you awaken

To a love you never knew

There I will be…

***

When you stand strong

For those who cannot for themselves

There I will be…

***

When you lift a little one

So she can touch the stars

There I will be…

***

When you search forever

In the worldly knot of time

There I will be…

***

When your branches entwine and twirl

In reaching for the brilliant sky

There I will be…

***

When your treasured moments

Burn bright with fiery promise

There I will be…

***

When your winding path

Feels far too far and far too long

There I will be…

***

When you are softly resting

Amidst the flutter of tender wings

There I will be…

***

When your soulful heart

Journeys atop the crested ocean waves

There I will be…

***

When you pause in wonder

To gaze at small things…

Solitude

Blue Sky Days 365

I am alone but not alone
my eyes see no one
my ears, aware only
of birdsong
through my open window
yet voices speak within, their words
a jumble of sound

I am alone but not alone
as people walk by
absorbed in activity
their faces animated
talking, alive
mothers, daughters, fathers, sons
longing for belonging

I am alone but not alone
family, friends, acquaintances
they say they care
they say they’re there
compassion and empathy
willingly given, yet
lacking understanding

I am alone but not alone
in social situations, my body
there, yet my mind
emotionally distant
engagement minimal
awkward conversation
stilted, I fall quiet

I am alone but not alone
remain inside my walls
a physical barrier
like the walls
in my mind
keeping me safe, keeping you out
only my thoughts for company
