just for today

i’ll be your friend

who understands

the solitude of rejection-

and in my absence

i’ll hold you warmly

fill your heart with sparks

     of hope

breathe a gentle whisper

     to your soul

where you shall feel

how a friend will always be

to guide your lonely steps

guard your emptiness

and give what you

deserve to receive

The poem was written back in 2015.

The photo is one I took at Mt. Carmel Cemetery, 2 November 2016


I am a poet, artist, jounalist/photojounalist.
