Throw down the dagger, fight for your life 
Right now you have lack of vision
unable to see a hand before your face
all because of a deadly stagger.

Look in the calm waters
at the reflection of you
in the water below
See who I see.
See what you can be.

Some will love us, Some will leave
even in the hardest times,
for they do not have the strength to fight.
They do not utter a sound.

Look in the calm waters
at the reflection of you
in the pool of tears below.
See who I can see
See what you can be.

If you’ve loved and lost in your heart
You’ve been given a genuine gift.
The fact you loved and felt the pain
proves it was true love from the start.

Look at the calm waters
They can reflect your life.
It’s the way it can be.
It’s what I see for you.
You can love yourself
because you know how to love.

Beautiful words. So rightfully sad. I loved every verse but that 5th stanza---just is SO ---I just think it cries all by itself the words are, so.. perfect. Love indeed is living life :) We live, we learn. I enjoyed the form and the way it read. Excellent work!

Thank you,
Teresa Emilie

Excellent piece Marlene! It reminds me of the fight for my life back from 1989-2002. I am healthy now where it concerns my brain but am now back in the fight for my life concerning my genetic disease which I have had since childhood it turns out, so fight for life has never really gone away after all, even though Mom likes to think it has!

It is an Excellent write though Marlene! Brilliant!
