Written by: Sandra Adams

i am grounded like autumn's leaves 
restless in your despair 
tossed in life's winds 
on a journey unknown 

i feel your pain, 
thick clouds hide days flame 
i can already taste the rain 
falling through your eyes 

in the dark of night 
shadows reach for me 
as i reach for you 

i feel cold, 
i am alone 
my soul calls out to you 
yet you are hidden 
beneath despair....

morning rises, damp again
as eyes that cry in silence
“And the verse falls to the soul 
like dew to the pasture.”                       ( PABLO NERUDA, "Tonight I Can Write)
