from within

If Only Brave

Far away I see in my Mind’s eye…

A small place, the darkness receding

Into the luminous light of a new day sky,

The breeze picks up and blows the gentleness in…

He is asleep, alone…  it is humid and hot…

On his side, cuddled like an innocent baby.

The tiredness of his features and a teardrop dot..

Hope and loss crossing swords in his dream maybe.

In tender silence of the room I bask,

Knowing my presence he will never guess…

If only I could be brave enough to ask…

If only he was brave enough to answer ‘yes’…
