Guardian


If there is a role I would like to portray,
It would be a redeemer who will save you
From your mysterious unfairness of life.
I know where this overprotectiveness comes-
From my knowledge of danger and evil
And though this is like rebel meets rebel,
Or blind leading blind, we shall get by.

You are the manna dropped from heaven
With the purpose to nourish, to complete.
From you to me, there is overwhelming bliss.
From me to you, I shed my blood,
That you may savor it as well.
My heart has a much profound definition now
Of fatherhood, motherhood, brotherhood,
Sisterhood, friendship fused into a single entity.

When your mind returns to your past,
Let me distract you with a lullaby.
When trouble finds you,
Be certain that it will find me too.
When places and spaces run out of vacancy,
I can be the corner for your shelter.
When all goodness is forgotten,
Let me remind you that there remains
Much in this world, still so much more in you.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
