I hope

A Poem By Brianna // 12/28/2007

Silent night, broken night
among the stars
shattered to scar
the hope held
so close
....so close

Wanting to walk away from
questions
begging desperately
to be answered
but never satisfied
because
you can't say

You don't know
you just don't know...
And I don't know.

It hurts to feel
the silence surrounding
my heart that beats
alone
its voice calling out
to hear the echoes
crying for
someone
to sing to it
love and truth
and understanding

The world steals
everything but feelings
like this.
Steals everything
you wish.
And you can only
dream
of things that cast light in
the morning

We were battle weary
I still am.
And I often wonder
about you too
and what you meant
and what you're going
to do.

I know how it feels
when you crush everything
no one seems to want
because you just want
to think good
of you;
of them.

But in the end
you're just a broken cup
unable to hold
anything good.
And it can break
even more
and you say
no
but I think
you know.
It can.

It's yours to guard
and yours to hold
and His to glue
back together.
He has seen
smaller pieces
and calmed
stormier weather.

So we live.
And we weave
our lives
together apart
with our colors
and our knots
and our holes.

And we hope
and we dream
and we cry
and we love
and we break
and we hold
and we fall
and we rise
and we live
our lives threads.

And I hope you know
and I hope you believe
and I hope you never forget
everything
you can be.

I don't think I ever commented on this one...

You know what I love, is that everyone always seem to be in a rush to answer questions. We want the love and the understanding and the dream and the truth. But I loved your willingness to just be, and to feel the pain of not knowing, not figuring things out, not understanding. It is vastly human. Sarah
