A wall between us

 

I’m not a mindless, shallow person
incapable of comprehending
that life doesn’t always
deal us the cards we want.

We all have our personal struggles.
We all have our crosses to bear.
We all have skeletons in our closets.
We all have stories to tell.
We all have issues
we’re self-conscious about.
We are all human.

The walls you hide behind
to shield your soul
also keep me away.
I have no desire
to force my way
into your life.
I rather be invited.

Don’t shut me out.
Share your heart
and I will guard your secrets
along with my own.
Just do the same for me.

Wind-swept

 

She stormed in
windswept and out of breath.
It’s been that way for her lately;
she’s juggling a lot
but somehow seems to pull it off.

Logistics and lack of time
get the best of her sometimes
but by the grace of God
she keeps pressing on.

She’s a special person —
tough yet sweet,
competitive yet fair,
fierce yet humble.

I like what I see in her,
yet it amazes me that sometimes
she doesn’t realize her own worth.

She’s made of ‘good stock’;
she’s a gem to be treasured;
she’s a fierce worrior;
she’s my dear friend.
