Sunset


Your tears are for the
both of us
I know your pain well
it is mine 
But its okay to break
let it go
My calm will help you
lift your burden
I'll help you in carrying
what you can't
My strength will serve when
yours is gone
I'll always be close by
keeping an eye
And when you're unable to
walk any longer
I'll carry you in my arms
across the sea ...
into the sunset ...

  6. This poem touched me deeply. It mirrors what is happening with my wife and myself - sadly I may not have the physical strength to carry her when she needs me to.
