last leaf

cheers for choked up tears,
cries without list’ning ears.

cheers for wistful dreams
caught or lost in raging streams.

cheers for days of cavalier
where lone strength perseveres,

cheers for named fears
fin’lly found courage sears,

cheers for ‘nother year,
lost hope grows, reappears.

  1. How how lyrical. I can sing that all day on a 2/2 beat 🙂 I love the portrayal of the choking up of tears. I sympathize with the dreams washing away in raging streams. How amazingly written. I can just sit and adore the beauty and strength of those words. Hugs hugs. Phenomenal

      1. Aww some of the best books touch your heart and draw out all sorts of emotions, including the teary ones. I’m glad to have been part of the journey that got such a book to you, my dear Rosema!!
