Your Presence

Your Presence

There is not a single soul on EarthYour presence in the clouds.

With whom to share these thoughts and fears

Confined within my mind, worse things seem to birth

It’s times like this I wish that you were here

With a palpable presence that is undeniable

And a sense of peace and comfort that is indefinable

Right now, it is all I can do just to fight these tears

Threatening to pour fourth with unwelcome relief

Unless you with your unconditional love are near

To reinforce that in myself I can still have belief

I would give almost anything to feel your hug

An embrace that says I’m safe no matter what

    Nicely penned Shannon, and that is our greatest wish, to be loved for who we are, unconditionally. Great verse.

      I suppose so, but it’s a rare thing here on Earth. Thanks.
