Abandon

Wrap around you like a ribbon
Take your grief in my palms

Toss it like stardust somewhere
deep and dark where the sun can’t reach

Light into your soul like a dove
lift the tapestry where old echoes lie heavy
Free them like captured fireflies

Your face in my hands
aiming towards the sky
Feel the sunshine

    Light into your soul like a dove
    lift the tapestry where old echoes lie heavy
    Free them like captured fireflies

    There is a light – heavy- light feel to this.
    Well balanced.

      Thanks, Jack.
      It’s meant to give a feeling of relief as the heaviness is abandoned.
      Must have done something right.;-)

    amazing write…thoroughly lifting.

  6. Wonderful, wonderful, Jodi.
    My favorite line was “Toss it like stardust somewhere” – such a familiar concept in your capable hands.

    I agree with the others. It’s a light and airy touch, carrying what seems like a heavy burden.

  7. “Wrap around you like a ribbon
    Take your grief in my palms”
