Drowning
 
Head above water
Struggling, but drowning
Every second I try
Ray of strenght returns
The dam breaks.
 
Tired of trying
The shore is too far away
Rushing, cold water
Continues to overtake
The dam is wide open.
 
My thoughts are drenched
No words of any kind
Water logged brain of mine
Drowning and drowning
Darkened water, I’m blind.
 
Can’t rise above the water
To overwhelmed this time
Gasping for air
It just keeps getting harder
The dam won’t close.
 
God, help me!

I know the feeling and can relate to it! I've been there also. Some times we wonder how we'll ever survive it all! We have to keep going forward and remain as strong as we can for our loved one and for our selves. There is a light at the end of that tinnel, and eventually you'll see it! I Know! Keep writing Deborah. My prayers are with you every day and night!....Love,,M
