Bury Your Head

An extended PiKu to close out PAD 2015,  30 days, 30 poems…
and my 1,000th poetry post!

 

BURY YOUR HEAD

in my chest
‘til
your tears subside.
Let
the pain slowly fade
away with each breath, each exhaled sigh.
Bury
your head in my chest, ‘til
you feel the safety
of my arms’
embrace. Let the pain
fade away with each tear-filled goodbye.

Each tear drops
in isolation, yet
never alone

RAIN OR SHINE
(a shadorma)

Each droplet
traces the path of
the one that’s
gone before.

 I wipe my cheek knowing they
all make me stronger.
