I stretch out my arm,
Feeling soft skin,
A tender reminder,
Of hearts joined together.
Somedays sadness comes,
Reaching inward to tangle,
That which holds me together,
My faith, my love, my heart.
No train, bus or car,
Can travel my path,
Or live my life for me,
I must keep moving and be strong.
Again, I stretch out my arm,
Forgetting how to cry,
Tears all dried up,
Still needing life to stir and blend me.
I cry out to God to say,
You are my truth,
I am weak and guilt still hampers,
Freedom from past times.
I roll over, knees drawn inward,
Sleep will come like a cover,
Tomorrow is another day,
Intertwined, one heart with another!
A warrior, a dance of strength,
Grabs me, reminds me of my hopes,
I reach for my dreams,
They are floating but so can I.
My way will come like the blossoms,
On the flowering pear tree,
Covering me with a blanket of blooms,
And a carpet of warmth and love!

I am an Adult Child of Alcoholic (ACOA) survivor – warrior. I am a poet, novalist, wife and mother. My goal is to help even one person by sharing my experiences with others. I love God, and Jesus and the earth that he has given to us to inhabit during our short stay here. I also feel blessed to be able to read the works of all the folks in our amazingly talented and supportive community.
