    her frame shows signs of wear
    from the long, harsh moments
    of life embracing her thoughts
    and suffocating her dreams;

    she lost her smile in the midst
    of success as the road to great
    required too high a price from one
    who sought love through position;

    every move was calculated
    every step was predestined
    every word was rehearsed
    every...mate pre-selected;

    and yet during the pre-paration
    of her life she didn't leave room
    to stumble across one who could
    guide her into a brand new realm;

    she found herself within my arms
    when the day took hold of her last
    breath of joy and she fell freely into
    the comforting arms of love's embrace;

    she sought tranquility in my voice
    and comfort within my embrace
    hoping to hide behind her strength
    but seeking to quietly escape;

    i'd brush her hair with my fingers
    and gently kiss he brow in places
    that hold the stresses of the day
    hoping my touch would release her;

    i would cover her like the blanket
    on the bed and warm her with the
    intimate heat of compassion as i
    rest her away from today's sorrows;

    and i would not let her go until "she"
    becomes "her", the one whom can let
    go of all that ails hers, all that pains
    her to make room for all that loves her;

    today, i will comfort...her...

    just some thoughts in the evening hour...
