Embracing Father.

Embracing Father.

A Poem by John Phoenix Hutchinson.

Have you ever had a dream as powerful as this???



Somber, I entered slumber.
Hoping to escape the pain.
Dark depression, had a hold on me.
Tender soul, brokenhearted slain.

As I fell into my dormancy.
Something happened, like never of yore.
Vibration, then hands lifting me up.
Naked, through mystical door.

Finding myself by childhood home.
Standing by pond, crystal clear.
Fishes swim with elegance and grace.
Feeding on my falling tears.

Suddenly, I hear my late Father cry out.
On a bed, he's prostrate before.
Kneeling beside, with my arms held aloft
I collapse and fall to the floor.

Awoken, by the warmth of his breath
He has entered my mind with his grace
"John do not seek darkness and death."
Weeping, we both embraced.

Waking up to a dream that feels so real and bring tears rolling down your eyes is heartbreaking. I am sad for your sorrow. You have expressed your sentiments well and have shown us the deeper side of your depression, which I know can be hard to share. This is troubling on your mind. but I am glad you were able to get it down. Thank you for sharing my friend.
