Your Voice

(This poem is for my friends who are all ready to encourage me and lift me up when my knees wobble and can hardly keep up the struggles of life. Thank you all for lighting my path.)


Such a sweet voice

Those unheard of

Bringing melodies to my ears

Soothing my frayed nerves

Allaying my fears


I want to remain

In that state

To hear it

Over and over again

Reclaiming my lost self

Wandering through the maze

Of thistroubledworld


And there you are

Letting your voice

Be heard

Beyond this confusion

Offering a piece

Of yourself

And much more

Your Love


When I want to sleep

Your voice keeps me awake

Nudging me to go on

Life is worth living

Because of the sweetest voice

I’ve heard…
