Dear Loved One,
I cannot express myself too clearly
When I vocalise the words
So I have decided
To write you this poem:
King of your castle, the world at your feet…
That’s how I prefer to see you my Sweet;
But the smile on your face seems different, today
As it touches your eyes in down tones of Gray.
The tone in your voice spells the fear in your heart,
Revealing a lifetime of bruises and scars.
Action speaks louder than words as you try
To disguise your wounded soul
While you silently cry
For moments and years that were twisted by fate,
And for time that was wasted through senseless debate.
But with me, dear Beloved, you don’t have to pretend –
Just relax in my presence – let me help you to mend
All that terrible brokenness – conquer all strife
As you slowly, but surely, step back into life.
