you are the sentinel

Stand with me,
just long enough
to let the wind carry my fears away.
I saw the glint in your eye,

the one
you let twinkle from the night sky.
I thought a planet had come into view,
until I realised it was just you, shining

brighter than all the stars that shone
beside you, above me.
You were giving me a message,
a hope for survival, for you,

for love.
I can feel you now,
brushing up against me
with your rays of light.
Hold steady for a moment, please,

don’t let the clouds get in our way.
I need your warmth
to give me courage to keep moving, moving,

forward and steady
with my reborn faith
in your ever sentinel grace.

  1. Thank you Mariann, for when you cry, know I cry a little with you and when clouds get in the way, they are in my sky too. And when you speak your brave, you make me braver. Thanks for this, always. ❤ Julia
