Those of you lost At this time of year .....verse

Updated on December 07, 2013

For all my faults , I have always had an overwhelming sense of empathy for anyone with a lost soul ..sadly there are so many , Most people will find their way back to peace or something close to it ,. At this time of year especially though , I feel a sadness for them !Just recently got a email from a hubber friend who is a bit "lost ".at present , we hadent heard from her for awhile and truly , I missed her writing . I won't get into who or what's going on , but I will say THIS , the only way I know how ........in verse.

This time of year .......

For the young soul lost in a demanding
world I would wrap my arms around
You and not let go
until the tears were spent
until you feel loved
and at peace

For the painfully scarred by love
I would stroke away the pain
with serene and heartfelt
touch
Until once again you
whispered
"maybe there is a way out of this hurt"

For the hungry I would prepare a feast to
dazzle the kings and queens
and serve you until
you burped and laughed
uncontrolled
and then desert

For the sad and lonely I would
challenge you in a game of
something until all of us
were dissolved in a murmur
of chatter
giggles
smiles and
friendship
all around the table

And for the child at heart no
matter the age hidden
in a dark and fearful place
I would barge in and slay
the dragons
Chase away these demons
and lift you into
my embrace
carrying you from that place
never to
go back again

Here's a huge hug from me to you all!

      So beautiful! And so heartfelt! I think many of us have felt lost at times, and all can use that "virtual" hug! Big hugs to you. Lynda
