another flight of fancy

i’d give anything
to be able to kiss away
your grief

to learn your body
slowly, cell by cell

to draw you into my bed,
hold you cocooned in my warmth
until you sleep, like a baby
like a baby

i’m a mother
aren’t i supposed to
be able to make it
all better?

Guess who??:) said...

A mother

a lover

an 'Angel'

a nurturer--you are!

you are the feminine of the universe

a gift to life

Shine-On, beautiful

xxxxx ;)

I know who you are; I don't have to guess:

you are the green man

the oak tree, the shade and the shelter

the sand king who embraces the salt of my storm
