When I

When I wasn’t sure I could walk,
your hand was there to guide me

When I wasn’t sure if I could talk,
your warm silence embraced me

When I thought I couldn’t go on,
your words were there to inspire me

When I struggled to smile,
you smiled for me

When darkness choked me,
your light broke through

When I doubted myself,
your confidence lifted me

When I thought my heart was done,
your love brought it back to life

  1. From our very first days, each of us looks up to one who, if we are among the fortunate, looks upon us with as much awe as we do him and gives us the guidance and support that you have received. I value all that I learned, well into adulthood.

  2. One of my favorites poems by you em. 🙂

    Love this line:

    When I thought I couldn’t go on,
    your words were there to inspire me

    When I struggled to smile,
    you smiled for me

    I can so relate to this and I know exactly what this truly feels like. A gentle inspiration leads to a joyful smile. 🙂 Beautiful!.

    Em, did you get the book on mail yet?
