There on the screen unfolds some dream
and I only want to climb inside,
stand alongside, hold you close,
lead you to hope,
just cry.

Caught up in some parallel universe
that keeps true tragedy at bay,
I long to lay me down,
down in your place
to die.

I have no real means to make a way,
no magic wand to share or wave,
no way to save, no reason
for such heartbreak,
no why.

Here, further inland, I lift my prayer.
You are tired and thirsty. I know.
Even so, I will hold you in my heart
and soul ítil all your tears
are dry.

"There on the screen unfolds some dream

Me, too. A beautifully comforting poem of hope amid chaos--compassionate and needed. Thank you, this is one of your best!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :(

There are too many tears--and will be for a long time to come. May the healing come....

No one could ask for, or do, any more than the selfless self-sacrificial giving of one's very own inner life to the plight of others, I am sure, Dawn. Such depth of feeling helps to bear the pain away from the epicentre of those in the midst of this hell, like shock waves of emotion radiating outwards. This is simply stated and all the more powerful and beautiful on account of it. Too many words are perhaps superfluous, whereas this feels like truly being "held". No, no answers - just love and empathy and "being there". When we "stand in the gap", God will do the rest as we rely on Him for the answers, not ourselves. May His be the divine wisdom graced upon those charged with getting to grips with sorting this out; all we can do is love in the most practical ways we can... not least of all by EXPRESSING our care as in the wonderful way you have here. Bless you and thank you. Kate xx

This empathetic offering is like a welcome balm Dawn!
Surely it soothes hearts with the knowing of a kindred
soul that cares! Beautiful psalm...

Love and hugs
