familiar paths to cover
the hardest of them all
they cross the unknown
which is the bravest route
take care upon this journey
upon darkened grains
by oceans black
when you weep alone
I hear you
your hands cannot wipe clear
this fog that will not lift
this is the view
of the world in which you live
I try to keep the candles alight
hoping to guide the way
but you always extinguish them
and even with my tears
…..you think you’ll burn

Sounds lonely and sad. ❤
There is a melancholic and helpless feel to your words… as the candles are extinguished and fears and despair ravages through.
Beautiful in its emotive intensity.
my love for you does not
So love I offer, it will always be so
support when I can, understanding I try
A shoulder always and a hug too
with firmness though, you know that
I am a Mom you see
The world is not against you
though it sometimes seems so
one step at a time, through the fog and sand
through bumps and turns, cliffs and rivers
there are sunny fields too, smiles to be had
lets go this way
one step at a time
look to my candle, to my love
….my love burns strong
This is beautiful and heartbreaking. I hope she realizes how deeply you love her, Jen. At least I think I know the source of your inspiration.
Intense and sad for both of you. Hugs )
Darkened grains by oceans black. Powerful image here. I’m drawn to it immediately.
If you need an ear, Jen.x
Darling be strong first for yourself and so then for her. I am here and in listening mode x
Praying you can help clear that fog, have faith. xxx
Oh Jen darling, sending you strength, love and healing. Take care of yourself. Your love as a mum knows no bounds – she will find her way back.
it is hard…and though at times it seems we can not bring light to a persons world…know that to have someone that cares means the world…
You chose a very meaningful way to express the emotions that run wild and rampant… within your daughter and your re-lighting the candles to give her brightness, hope and light, while she feels she will ‘burn.’ Powerful images, well written, Jen…hugs for your brilliance shared with us.
