Waiting to begin


Please
Don't ever think
That I don't understand
That I don't know how you feel
That I won't hold out my hand
Please don't ever think
That I won't be there for you
That you are unimportant
And I have just too much to do
Please
Don't ever think
That the pain will not heal
It is hurting so bad we know it is real
But please
You must think and also believe
That one step at a time is all you need to achieve
One step
One path
One new corner to turn
It can be done. This you will learn
You must know that there are many warm hands
Crying out to help
Just wanting to understand
So please, believe and let people in
There is Life out there for you just waiting to begin

YOU CAN, YOU MUST, BELIEVE AND TRUST.

    A lovely thoughtful poem - we all need to reach out at times, and often feel that there is no one there for us. (Report) Reply

    That's what rulers are for, to measure one inch at a time progress.
    And to count on, one friend at a time.
    Waiting and beginning seem so different, but we are all waiting to begin... anew.
    But beginning anew is so much better if you can shate it with friends. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
