The Sands.
I feel I am a grain of sand
Upon some lonely beach
Surrounded now by millions
Yet none can see me weep
My heart now feels so heavy
In this cold and darkened place
Consuming any warmth that's left
Now etched upon my face
The scars revealed for all to see
Become my tracks in time
Dissolving flesh and blood as one
Just as the sands of time.

Sometimes a soft song says more of despair than a dramatic scream.  This is a case in point.  Sturdy despite sadness  Whole beside splinter...  I love the double rhyme of 'time.'  Beautiful.  --David

Dear Graham,


A beautifully expressive poem full of grief and sorrow.

There isn't a piece you have ever written that didn't move me and touch something deep inside. You are a master poet, one of the most respected on this site. I can feel your pain and the loneliness in this poem. May you find the comfort and peace you deserve as you move through time, day by day. As your friends, we stand waiting to always encourage you and love you as you have done for us.

Such sadness between the lines of this
heart breaking poem that I read..

 I know its' diffult to understand and
other times to even breath ..

 This heavy coat that you were in this cold place...
 I understand all to well with anguish on your face ..

You have a shoulder to lean on until you
regain your stength  to live in the light ..

 Until then just be where you need to be
perhaps now you just need the night ...

This pathway is in shadows for now...
But you will find your way to the light some how .
Texas sends her hugs and LOve ~ She Whispers

You may be lonely Graham but rest assured, you are not alone. I've been in this place too...many times in fact. It is cold and dark indeed. I pray you still see the light and move toward it as you heal. I see your tears and feel your anguish. Healing takes time...the more deeply we love the greater the wound. The measure of a man is not how great his faith is but how great his love is. You express yourself very clearly from a massive loving heart. Be well my friend. *hugz*
