Daily missive for Tuesday the 12th of May.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Tuesday the 12th of May.

I will hold you
In good times
Protect you in bad.
Keep you safe
From all you fear
And rock you
In the cradle of my arms.
Even as the ground
Beneath us
Shifts and slides
Like molten sand,
Pulled this way and that
By the relentless
Tide of life,
Its salt encrusted waves,
Whipped by raging
Winds
That bite and tear
In restless frenzy
And seek to break
This sweet embrace.
Though we may fall,
And lose the promise
Of safe passage
We may have hoped for,
Nothing will persuade me
To let you go.

Even as we are overwhelmed
In the cacophony
Of storms
That accompany
This great flood
Of life
I am redeemed.
And in the midst
Of all these struggles
I have been shown
A glimpse of paradise.
And together
We have found where
It begins,
And in this
Maelstrom
It continues to flow,
All the way from here,
To eternity.
