One Little Word

One Little Word

A Poem by Andrea A. Wentz

A poem how one constant in someone's deep depression can mean the difference between being consumed by the dark, or seeing a glimmer of hope in the distance.

During my darkest hours
There was always one constant
A light telling me
Despite involuntary isolation
I had not been forgotten
Not ceased to exist
Told me I was remembered
I was cared about
A light that said
Though you are far away
Though you are dreaming
I am with you...
You are in my thoughts
Without that little glimmer
Darkness would have closed in
The void of wakefulness
Would have been all I saw
One little word
Every morning
Every day
Kept me here
Kept me hopeful
That word was nothing more
Nothing less than

Oh yes so inspirational... it reminds us that just being alive is a blessing... coarse I believe that one word that keeps us going is faith.

By the way welcome back.
