In Your Black Hour Of Need

Who can you turn to
When you are feeling down?
Will anyone pick you up
When life has kicked you to the ground?
What will heal the wound of
A knife stuck in your heart or back?
Where can you find a guiding light
When encroaching darkness is on a relentless attack?

You can turn to me, I can help
Even if away I am far,
Keep holding on, I'll priece your blackness
With the light of my brightly burning star.
I do not pretend to know
How tough it is for you,
But to help and make you happy again
Everything in my power I will try to do.

I don't know if, in
Returning your smile I will suceed.
But know that I will stick by you
And wipe your tears in your black hour of need.

your poetry is becoming so rich Liz. Love is good for the poetic soul.

Such a sweet confirmation, is all a person could ask for. He is a lucky young man. One line got me, 'Even if away I am far' would sound better as, 'Even if I am far away' but that is just my opinion and it is your poem. Just a thought. Well done.

Smiling at you
