Poem: There's A Place I'm Searching For
...Don't we all , sometimes, just want to hide away?
There’s a Place I’m Searching For
There’s a place I’m searching for,
to hide away, escape this cold.
A place where I may lose the pain,
that has engulfed my soul.
I’ll hide away within those walls.
A mighty fortress will not bend…
will drive away the pain and strife,
before it can descend.
Oh, peaceful rest, to soothe my heart.
And time to ponder what has been-
to lick my wounds- to get in touch
with ME… to start again.
To gather strength where all seemed lost.
Hold tight to what is left of me.
Protect my eyes from hurting rays,
‘til softer light I see.
I’ll linger there until the time
when I can face the world once more.
I’ll stay there, safe, until I’m healed,
and stronger than before.
