i know you to be strong faith-full loving musical. but you look at me from the past and i wonder who that woman was. you seem mysterious shy beguiling soft. did you know then who you would become? did you have dreams of doctor pastor engineer teacher denied to  you because of the circumstance of your birth? or did you look towards the future with a surety knowing motherhood sunday school teacher cook wife were the fulfillment or your dreams? your heart is my heart your eyes are my eyes your hands are my hands. together we have it all. created for Poetry Potluck   for gramma k.

only love

Lament, Love, Poetry, Spirituality
if i could, i would ease the melancholic nightmares that haunt your mind.    if i could, i would battle the horrors that bite at your heels like starving piranha.    if i could, i would carry you away to the land of manna and shelter you from the unbearable.    if i could, i would provide you with water that would douse the fire burning your soul. if i could, i would shoulder it all. but i can’t.  my superpower is not flight or safety or strength of arm or providence.  it is only love.
