You, in the Background – December 26, 2019

Thank you,

For keeping me

Standing up tall

There are days

My limbs

Seem so heavy

It’s hard to do

Or be

Helping to lift me

Where I needed

Right here

Pointing in a direction


I couldn’t always see

Kept me moving on


How many times

I wanted to break


At my own feet

Then, right there

I’d feel the breath

Blowing past my lips

Reminding me of

Where you are

And will always be
