a letter for you


I can handle border issues
you think I depend on you
unknowingly you depend on me
my insight did not warn me of this plight
this fire within me forces me to confront you head on
but you are on the road again
what crisis drives you away trouncing everything in its wake

my wings will help me fly away
but what about my promises I made to you?
words may have died between us for now
but you know I will stick around as always
I sense that you are lost now
and you know I will find you
as I have always done and always will
thanks to the world beyond

"what I and you have does not have a name
it does not have to
who wants to learn a new spelling inventing a new word?"

What a letter this would be to receive. To know that someone cares enough not to walk away when times are tough!

"I sense that you are lost now and you know I will find you." Those who wander need to know there is one person who has their back. Awesome message in this poem/letter.

Even if one is far from the object of love one is certainly near at heart. Great write gautami!

Having a guardian angel is great but you mustn't cheat on her just because she always helps you. It is up to you to change.

This is part of the freedom of relationship in a way, to have a thereness we could take for granted through even the hardest times. It's the saddest thing when the reason for leaving is distrust of that. What a fine "Letter" and finer question at the end.

Helen said...

Your poetry echos a bit of what is happening in my life at the present, it certainly struck a chord.

are you speaking of flying away to another plane of existance, putting a period on this one ?

I liked that this poem could be considered on several levels.
