solitude

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
