A Shoulder, Is All I Need Poem by Hadil Diaf

A Shoulder, Is All I Need

Rating: 4.5


A shoulder that's all i need
From a soul that feels as i feel
Someone who knows me indeed
A soft hand of a dear friend
that cleans my tears til the end
Of the phase where i'm sad
A shoulder to hold me in
To keep me warm and safe in
Whenever it gets too cold
Til i see shadows of gold
A deep and honest smile
Can drive me a whole mile
Forward in my life
Can make me have enough
Of these horrible and tough
Days, eves and nights
An empathy look in my eyes
Can lead me to where i rise
Beneath old cinders and flames
A shoulder is quite enough
To make me smile again
To clean all harm and pain
That keep showing in my heart
That keep harrassing my nights
That keep killing me everyday
A shoulder is all i need

A well articulated piece of poetry nicely penned with insight. I guess we all need the soothing effect and comfort of a friend and loved ones shoulders in moments of grief and pain. A lovely poem indeed. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.
