A Peaceful Respite

Silence is golden, a cherished gift
If looked at from the flip side
I can go there sometimes; with a gentle push
From those that love me
Allowing me to rest, to let the fragility
Of my heart to take a break
Not to skip a beat or hold hand to chest;
But a peaceful a respite
A calming whisper that seeps into my soul
Wrapping me in a blanket of safety
It isn’t a scream, it’s a deep
Cleansing breathe; a healing
Each day that comes and goes
Like a lens focusing on clarity;
It is the truth that will set me free
And the stretch to let love find me once again…
