Acrobat - Poem by Eila Mahima Jaipaul

I am an acrobat
walking high up on the wire
knowing well that I may fall
still I climb up higher.
Light and balanced
I am unsure of every step.
If I should fall I will surely die
and my body will break and my soul will fly
into the night where the spirits scream
I will leave your world and become a dream.

Till then, your love will be your saving grace.
I'll hold you through your winter.
Knowing well that you will leave
But still I hold you closer.

Let me shine the light down the road you travel.
Knowing that the things you treasure will be the hardest to comprehend.
I'll feel you struggle till the answers come.
Then you'll fly away.
But take my hand until that day
so you'll know the true depth of my love.

I know that change will come.
I'd give the world to stop that flow.
But like a silhouette dancing I can see you
the shadows become clear as you take your leave.

Then my body will break and my soul will fly
Into the night, where my spirit screams.
then I'll leave your world and become your dream.
