Sadness is my anchor
for the bruises on your heart
for the pain in your soul
for answers untold
I seek soothing words
to ease your mind
but to their presence
I am blind
In hoping to comfort
a new prayer is said
for healing and peace
and all pain released

Sometimes this is all we need, to know someone is with us, caring and praying.
Beautifully said Lauren. And Im sure all of us are in need of such words at some time in our lives. ❤ HBL xxx
Thanks so much, Chris, I know I’m in need probably more than I want to be! I feel a little helpless, not knowing what to say or do to help some family and friends going through tough times, so I hoped sharing this would help in a small way. HBL ♥ xxxx
So heart warming Lauren. Thank-you for this beautiful poem. Have a special day filled with love and kindness. ♥

Thought waves floating through the realms – seeking out sponges of despair to wet heavy with tears – as these drop, they take away the pains – thought waves you’re released through the realms
