The Child and Wolf


There is a melody that is both happy and sad

It plays through my head until I feel I am going mad

Yet I remember with joy there is a new member in our family

And cry that he was taken away so quickly to journey

Be safe where you go, and remember the small child

Who beamed with pride when she was told that you were her uncle

That smile sometimes is like a beacon of light

For she becomes sad thinking of her blood families flight

Now when I tuck her in and tell her who the majestic wolf is

Her guardian and uncle the smile she returns is

If you find the creature made of snow and ice

I think I will finally rest again which would be nice

Yet sometimes yearning for something like the beast

Has made me realize that I deserve to learn more to be released

A prison you make and your own mind has no bars

Yet to get out seems to be so very hard and far

A wolf runs through each hidden gallery of adversaries

Only to find there is a hidden mercy

We miss you already and its been only one day

To have found that word from you, has went astray

Dream of her smile, and her changing her doll

For now she carries a wolf as well

Good afternoon Miss B from Colin , Tiffy and Gabriel.

You are a very visual writer/poet and your words here take me - metaphorically speaking, into another world - in my mind I see and hear a music video here and it's because the words have brought the imagery and meaning to life.

How are you feeling today dear friend? My thoughts and prayers are always with you.

Sending you warm wishes from lake erie time 2:50pm

Epi,

Slowly working on health, but in a positive way.

I thank you for your critique its always uplifting. I wrote this based on my medieval Fantasy game. There was a wolf clan and a small child who's uncle was a shifter, and her aunt was of a magical race made totally from magic. Long story but quite fun.

Hope you and the kitties are keeping warm it is freezing in NY.
