It is so hard when people you love are in pain. This poem is a lament turned hopeful for peace and healing to come from abject sorrow.
how do you dress the wounds you can’t see? what bandage will salve the damage to you and me? how to address the grief our walls hide? what words will break the dams we create inside? how do we build a new hope to inhabit? how to return to peace and just grab it? something in me knows your soul and respects it; that voice also says give time for reflection can time passing stop the abject suffering? we will only know when we start recovering questions always prevail in my heart: will my actions help your healing process start? we love you, beautiful soul in distress, and will help you get those open wounds dressed the answers aren’t clear and the pain is gray-stark but the love and the hope will lighten the dark
