    (((To a very special friend...during her moment of <slow down>:))))

    Grey cloud covers cast
    Surreal shadows
    Over restless seas

    I see you…

    Riding the fringes
    Between sleep and watchful alertness
    Blessed
    With the closeness of loving friends
    Even men
    Who miss you

    You’re not alone

    When life’s burdens
    Knock on your door
    When you’ve experienced too many disappointments
    And can take not one more
    When the next day arrives
    And you look…you’ll see

    You’re not alone

    When the bed you’re lying in
    Feels hard and cold
    Think of God’s warmth
    Let Him warm your soul
    And touch the heart
    I’ve come to know

    Get well, my friend
    We have places to go

    Over the mountain of dreams
    …Oceans everlasting
    We travel a lifetime
    Looking
    Searching
    Seeking brief moments of solitude
    When God sits beside you
    And wishes you…a blessed day

    You’re not alone

    Get well, my friend.

    this was tight brah...
    that's a sentiment that must be said
    to be known
    cause everyone at one point
    feels alone
    peace

    slowly she's rising
    disguising the pain
    ...laboured breathing
    needing to rest
    still she tests
    the limits of her being

    coz she's tough.:)

    THANKS for reading.
