If I could lift the fog for you,
And let the cool clear air touch your face
revive your senses,
I would wrap the fog around my shoulders awhile,
A blanket heavy and woolen
dulling the world around,
And love you better for it.
If I could somehow enter the fog with you,
Leaning into the burden together
and finding it lighter,
But the fog is solid, impenetrable,
And there is no door
for me to find a way in,
And I stand useless under a blue sky.
There is light and life all around me,
Except where you are
and I don’t understand,
But I want to.
If I could be a rainbow in your cloud,
And make a road for light
to meet your footsteps,
I can’t hold light in my hands,
I can’t break through
with any strength,
So I just stand here, waiting.
For Mom, Trina, Jen, Jenni, Teri, Becky, and all in my circles who are walking a road I have never traveled. I love you.
Grace & Peace,
