Unending tears – TB

20 Feb

It hit me today…

As a child
I would cry
When it got too much.

I knew if I cried
I’d be lifted
Out of and away from my sadness.

Strong hands accompanied
By soft kind words
And my world was OK again.

Now, in tears, I could drown.
No one would come.
It’s no longer difficult homework or a cut knee.

…this is war.
