Poem -

A Reason To Stay

I comfort fears and bad dreams
But I face my nightmares alone
No matter how hard I look I see no reflection
Of all the care or compassion I've shown
I protect with ferocious determination
My concern I can not will away
But when I face danger there is no one around
To guard me or worry or pray
I'm not looking for an exit
If I was I'd make my own way
I dont want to go
I dont want this to end
So just give me a reason to stay

What a well written piece about the sadness of feeling forgotten..we have probably all been there at one time or another and this piece captures that empy feeling very well.Nice work Twilla!   Lodigiana x
