Desolation of your heart
(written down, it's so cliche')
My God--to beat this demon back--
I would take it all away.

If I could be
your mother, new--
lullabyes
I'd sing to you.
Every hunger,
every thirst,
every bubble
ever burst--
I'd repair them--
rainbow hued...

I rage against
these gods who laugh--
their wicked grins
of aftermath...
Hold my hand
and understand,
it's all that I can do.

(for Kathe')

Serenity~
To hold a hand is to hold a heart.
Lovely thoughts you've expressed.

Sometimes we can't go back and repair what happened in the past, but we can start fresh. Very good poem!

Excellent my friend. . .

deVine is right, sometimes, you just have to start over again. . .

Wonderful poem. . .

im back me sweet..
it is so hard to watch a loved one go thru heartache and pain, and feel like we cant heal them...
you tender heart shines in this one me twin.

 Some things cannot be explained by verses that rhyme,
They are not measured by the commitment of time.
Some emotions run too deep to be described by words,
Forgiveness and understanding-remain the most beautiful words ever heard.

Thanks to all---just needed to express how helpless I feel regarding my friend's grief--I had no idea how to reply to her questions of "why"--then I read Elizabeth Santos' "REASONS"--still don't know why--but I understand now that that is not a question for me to answer--so I'd like to thank Elizabeth again, you have taught me much with your grace and dignity and faith.

S'en,
You continue to force beauty through the feelings of despair, anger and bitterness. It's obvious you have lots of hope, and that's what I mean when I say you are a strong woman. And with words like these, you are definitely not oblivious.
