Love's Calmer Seas

Love's Calmer Seas

Someday, it may all go away to make sense
In my defense, I never believed in pretense
I wear my heart on my sleeve for all to see 
It was the convincing whispers in weeping trees
That used persuasion and persuade that fateful day
To turn life upside down in such a hurtful way

If only I had known of coming, crashing waves
I could have avoided vices from restless knaves
But it was a storm of such secret, sneak attack
I had no time to guard my heart, nor to look back
Swells of emotions were thrown on lonely shores
Suddenly, my life before existed no more

Forced to sink or swim, I stroked in sad set sputter
Without sailing knowledge, no boat, raft or rudder
Facing the unknown world with scared, tentative view
Never understanding, the future would bring you
Ready or not, changes come inevitably
I pray for calmer seas, true love, preferably

thank you, T.  Life is so unpredictable and full of changes that come whether we are ready or not...and we have to adapt or sink into depression's grip.  I am glad you felt its lonely tone and its reserved nature.  Thank you for your support and insight.  xo Love n Hugs, C

Hi Liz.  Thank you.  I think my reference for painful change came from my divorce to my first husband after 20 years of marriage.  Life is so unpredictable, and we have to learn to adapt to changes or get so lost in depression and hopelessness.  I am sorry you are going through very painful changes in your life right now.  Sometimes, in retrospect, we see that the changes had to come to bring a new direction in life.  But it is so hard going through them and seeing any hope at the time.  I think I always carry a sadness within myself that has just become a part of who I am from my individual experiences.  I have accepted it as a part of life.  Thank you for your valued comments. xo ;)
