My heart still aches.....

I send my thoughts on a journey across the sea
I call to the sky and shout to the stars
I whisper to the wind... take a message to her please

I whisper, can you hear me?
I shout to you....
Can you hear me call your name?
My mind is in a dance
My thoughts never rest

A pink dawn arrives quietly
Frost touches the ground
I shout to the daybreak......

....... are the birds singing...

  1. Very pretty...Have a great week.


  2. To lose a child must be the most terrible thing - I can't even imagine but I can sympathize with you. The poem you posted is so poignant.
