A note to self

A note to self

A Poem by Lane-roe

When all was lost, you came to me

When faith had flown, you came to be

When darkness fell and light had fled

You crawled onto my single bed

 

Without a word, you let me know

The strength and joy I’d yet to sow

You built me up and held my back

You nursed me from the cruel attack

 

You brushed my hair and cleaned my skin

You baptised me with love, from sin

You taught me what it means to grow

To laugh, to cry, to feel, to know

 

I learned to walk with shaky feet

You helped me by singing the beat

Of life’s pure joys and crushing woes

And teaching me round and round it goes

 

I learned to stand alone again

I learned to be my own best friend

I learned to put my faith in me

And trust that I know perfectly

 

That in the mirror, I see me

The person I was meant to be

That nothing there is wrong or bad

That I am scared, not crazy or mad

 

I taught myself to live again

When no-one cared, without a friend

I learned to look inside my bones

And see the strength that self-love hones

 

With my strength, my love and light

The darkness faded from my sight

I learned to see the good once more

And love myself from skin to core

A strong, revealing write, with contemplation as the central motif. I like the assertiveness tempered with gentleness, a lovely combination.
