Domestic Violence affects us all…awareness can save a life...


Sleep eludes me as I wonder, concerned for the soul of my friend,
I sit and wonder why life must be so heavy and alone before the end.
I wonder if she’s sleeping or lying there in fear,
Is she crying, is she wondering, is she hoping I was near.
My eyes grow heavy as I wait for word, a simple yes I’m here,
I cannot help but wonder as my heart pounds with my fear.
Fear that she is facing all she must alone,
And damned that I cannot help, not to even pick up the phone.
She said she’s not ok, told me not to worry,
All I can do now is wait and hope that morning hurries.
I need to hear her voice and know that she’s okay,
He hurts her heart and soul and keeps her love at bay
He doesn’t understand her; her strength fills him with fear,
So he beats her down emotionally, filling her soul with tears
She lays there quiet listening as his breathing evens out,
Strong as she is she wonders as her heart is filled with doubt
Her marriage is in shambles, seems doesn’t have a prayer,
I hope she thinks about me and knows that I am there.

A simple poem...

I am not who I was
Nor am I who I am
I have no form, no thought
I care no longer for the world and its ways
Without a thought, without a breath
No more than a whisper in this life
I leave as I came
With nary a sound nor a glance.
It is not in me to desist
Nor is it in me to give up
And yet the burden of life weighs heavily
The yoke of responsibility cuts deep
Happiness is but a glimmer, a dream, a want
Yet the rising sun, the sound of waves crashing
Signal an awakening, a renewal.
With the incoming tide we are borne on a swell of hope
That there is meaning to our pain
A meaning to our journey
Finding one person to help shoulder your burden,
To see you through the pain.
That friend awaits you on that beach
Sitting silently in the distance
Your soul smiles as your pain eases
Knowing who awaits you up ahead
It is the friend to shoulder your burden,
Who will save you from despair
You sit shoulder to shoulder
No words need be said

A simple poem for a simple life…take a moment to appreciate the person this poem represents to you…life is short.  Till next time…
