I know Blue

He sometimes comes

to stay awhile with me

When he’s around

I can barely breathe

He gets caught in my throat

or lingers too long

just behind my eyes

Pretending to be a friend

he steals clear thoughts

right out of my head

I then wind up in tears

I don’t dislike Blue

At least he makes me cry

It’s better than being ignored

without knowing

or understanding

the reason why

heart

Been on a search

throughout the season(s)

for hope, understanding

for the best reason

to cling to this tree

keep singing my song

defy sadness, disappointment

never resort to wrong

Always led back to one thing

though questioned when put to test

the most pressing thought

as sun rises east, sets west

is to give; give you this

as deep as the deepest tide

big enough for the world

there’s no time to bide

Please take this gift

pure, soft, warm, so true

then know you are loved

 my heart, I give to you 

 

 

                        (if you wish,

                          you could regift)
