I Wish Only to Reach You........

If you were surprise ....wouldn't You.... reach over the
edge of the cliff to save me as my grip
slips away

Or if by the dark of night would you
light the way for a child so he
might see as in the day

Or the battered woman in tears and bruises
take her by the heart
help her strongly

Or the bully in the school yard
explain until his tears .....how he
acts out wrongly

I wish only to reach out to you
and touch the insides of
your gentled soul

In compassion alone ........ for the
smile to return to your face
that you might regain control.......

And if you let me touch you
I will be revived by these
acts of love

Perhaps in the end .....we will
be alllowed into the heart of
the heavens above

All man needs an awakening on how to treat one another and love one another. The smallest words or acts of kindness and compassion go such a long way. I have always believed that one act of kindness or love goes on and on for a long time. Instead most will get caught up in how they feel/ self centered. I heard something today...Do whats right even if it doesn't "feel right." I love the poem and hope to read a lot more like it soon...love and hugs

You've written a poem ahorseback that speaks to what we are underneath it all,...or should be. The kind little word here, the eye-to-eye interest there, the helping hand, they all make the difference in the biggest way. daddysgirl said it beautifully and first, which is fitting considering her father.
