A light in the darkness that binds her
A wolf in sheep’s clothing or a saviour from the dark?
He holds for her a hope:
A possibility that eternity may not be forever torturous
A light at the end of the tunnel
The oxygen she no longer felt she would breathe again
Playing the game without tricks
It is a new feeling all together
Fear evaporates yet remains entrenched
Fear is the one thing that never abandons;
It is the eternal companion when hope has eluded and love has burnt to cinders
For life is the biggest unknown we know;
and love is the ship that carries you to shore
A life’s work is not a series of stepping-stones onto which we calmly place our feet, but more like an ocean crossing where there is no path, only a heading, a direction, which, of itself, is in conversation with the elements.
