My Arrow

Don't you fall, don't make me sad anymore
Whenever you call, it makes me feel so helpless 
I know what is hurting, deep down inside you
With no place to hide and crying's not selfish
But I will be here whenever you reach out
I’m always here for you, you are never without 

I see those eyes, I do not like them
When they are weeping, but when you fly
I see you smiling when you lie there just sleeping
I understand what everyone is thinking
But I see two eyes so playful and beautifully sinking
And how I adore you, so stop what you are thinking
 
Love comes from I, in the wind it blows
It swirls all round you; I know how it's life
And just how it goes, I am just so happy I found you
And I miss you, when you are not here 
And I know that you love me, and I know all your fears
So don't ever fall, don't make me sad anymore
Whenever you call
                                                   
I know all your feelings; I know when you've been weeping
You told me them all; I tell you I love you
You are so happy flying and smile when you are sleeping
I think of you as you are sleeping I know where you go
Right into my heart just like an arrow
   															                                                         
So don't ever fall, don't make me sad anymore
Whenever you call, I will pick you up once more
And let you fly and fly into your sweet dreams
As you sing into them all, I will hear a song
As sweet as a new bird, who sings to the skies
Whenever she flies

Cynthia, Congratulations on your win. I'm finally making time to read every entry, intended for me in Shadow's Hamilton depression contest. It was a tough fight, however at the end I prayed, and asked to take over and he did. WOW, it was what I call a miracle. Thanks for lifting my day with this poem... Love LINDA

I am happy you are better, I pray a lot, I was worried for you, I know what depression is and can do, I am in a long battle myself, I see no end to it yet,

I wrote it for a close friend who helped talk me out of doing something to hurt myself, I have a poem called my last words, it was a real suicide note, it is linked to my arrow

thank you for letting me enter, I shy away from contests, but I wanted to enter for PD

I love the images of wind, singing flying . . . to love, to forgive, to love again . . . that does take incredible courage . . . but without it we would not know the beauty of the flight! Nicely done.
