in stillness you found me

blackbird

 

 

in stillness
you found me
in the quiet darkest moment
given up
last breath forgotten
you held my hand
and saved me

I look to the sun, the sky
for answers

why? why do I turn
instead of watching
your face in the afternoon sun?

thoughts diverted
into chasms of sand
dried up water channels
the remains of last year’s storms

your touch reminds me
breathe

your smile reminds me
stay

your love reminds me
as the world falls away

you found me
in the quiet darkest moment
given up
last breath forgotten
you held my hand
and saved me
