She Understood

In the depth of his bones
she is the strength
which is his character
for he stands for her
when he cannot stand alone.


When he falters….
she reaches out
she is the marrow
which supports him.


She is the light
which moves his shadows
the angel…who opens the gates.


She is the heavens
the straight line
when his heart beats in hell
she understands his twisted thoughts
she understands his mind.


And when he dies
a new child will be born
so there's no reason for tears
no pain to shed
he's going home
knowing..that she understood

- him.

  1. Just wonderful. And so true. When just one person gets it, it is so well worth while. Beautiful, I agree with Neva.
