Five Minute Friday: When you Awake


This week's word: awake



For my son,

When you awake dear child
I'll be here
there will still be clouds and there will still be tears. 

When you awake dear child
I'm afraid I'll find
your hand slipping a little from this grip of mine.


  When you awake dear child,
I pray you do
find each one of life's doors and go running through.


 When you awake dear child
I'm proud to say, 
you'll walk with intention into each new day.


When you awake dear child
and find me gone
know that I'm deep inside you

steady. 
Strong.

    I love what you wrote here. In the sidebar it says you are working full time and working towards a degree? When I was 28, I was working full-time and working towards my B.A. too. And I had a 5-year-old. Some of those days, for me, were long and hard, but I am so thankful I finished. There are lighter days ahead. Press on, dear sister.
