Detoured

Whispers of a poet's heart

I’m reminded of the times

You pulled me from darkness

Where life left me stranded

Steeped in unknown fringes

You reflected a strength

That I once herald myself

Before the scars I bare now

And long before your birth

I still recall our conversations

Where you inspired me onward

Hugged hope back into my heart

Wiped away my fallen tears

Modeling unconditional love

That separates us… for now
