Poem 51


Artwork by Anja used with permission

Come my Prince rescue me

Take me from the bonds that tether

I am weary of the endless search

The never-ending moments when all is lost

I do not want to lose hope

Nor do I want to forget

The moments when I craved freedom

The times you called and I could not answer

As shackled I was

In pain and desolate

In a land that had lost all sense of joy.

My prayer has been

That through the mists

The fogs that enclose me

You will seek me out

Find me before it is too late

For I fear the darkness may

Have its final say, and I shall be gone

Only a memory

A photo on a wall

A moment in time

When all was good

When flowers bloomed

The smell of roses was sweet

When I was loved

and all was safe.
