Until

Speak to me
Let me hear
That you know I am here
That you care that I am here

All I have wanted
Was for you to be
Yourself again
You wanted that too
Before this all began
And now you are closing down

Donít leave me here in silence
While you are locked in memories
I could sit with you
Until it passes

All I want is to hold you
I cannot take it all away
But I could hold you
Until you feel safe
I could sit quietly
Until you quit shaking

All that was done to you
Happens again and again
All that was done to you
Happens again and again to me as well

No, I was not there
But I am here
And I will protect you
As best as I can
But you hold your pain so closely
You can barely breathe

You cannot protect me
From fears that escalate
I am not your savior
But I bring you all that I am

Please do not walk away
Do not leave my hand
Hanging in mid-air
I am here for you
In your silence, in your tears
I will not abandon you

V.

Violet,

That's beautiful and I can tell it comes straight from the heart. Every line is wonderful, but I think you really hit the nail on the head with this part:

We all need to remember this.

Much love,

Oh V, that was fabulous. It is how I feel and wish he could understand. Thank you so much for sharing.

This one has always been special to me, so I thought yeah, let's pop it back to the surface for another look. Thank you again, Violet, for such a caring and healing poem.

Much love,
Larry
