Rise with Life 

My heart nervously beating 

As my eyes match the new horizon

He left in a shocking way

With not even a shadow to trace 

The sky opens her eyes to change 

Asking me to do the same 

Oh but I miss the hands to hold! 

And the stories that laugh as they unfold 

I feel misunderstood 

By the king of understanding 

…it is no fun to feel that way

But I rebuke confusion in these coming days 

I will grow with the bougainvillea 

Wrapping their vines tight to feel ya 

Spreading my hands like Eagles

Above his memory adorned with flowers 

The sky says, daughter it is time 

To rise despite…


Fall in love 

…with this unhinged life

  1. Good girl, and beautifully written Soldiergirl. Our lives may feel unhinged but it is through that unhinging comes the light.
    Slowly, gently we allow ourselves to feel again and ‘knowing’ the love is there…for ourselves…and from others.
    Be proud because you are taking those steps to find that love.
    Big hug my friend, the sun is rising 🙂
