Be my all…

Take my hand,
Lead me across these waters
Bring the calm,
Stall these rapid swarms
And drifting torrents that storm
Hold me aloft,
Up and above this sweltering river of pain,
This cascade of pelt
And a future in drown.
Touch my soul,
Fill it with magic,
Bathe it in warmth,
Coat it with love.
Take away my every yearn,
Dull this throbbing ache,
And mend this broken heart.
Bring back the light,
Illuminate the path,
Be my guide,
Lead me aright,
Be my refuge,
The pillar of all my strength,
Be my all…
All I need,
All I’ll ever need!

Love leaves...

Frozen, wintry laughter,
Wrought, false and dry,
Golden amulets of teardrops,
Crisp and cold,
Break down in minuscules
And run runnel,
Flitting the scape,
Down the napes into capes,
Cleft between sadness and joy,
Threnodies and carols,
A silent bleeding,
For at first crack,
The reindeers trudge on home,
And tonight, love leaves...
