I'm going to finish with a rewrite of a post from the 23rd of April 2021
To my wife, my North Star, my lioness, my everything
Thank you for finding me...
IF FOUND PLEASE RETURN
Have you, seen me?
I was lost a long time ago,
I wandered away,
When I wasn’t looking,
...And unfortunately I kept going,
I don’t know where I went,
The one inside,
The real me,
I just kept drifting along in life,
But I desperately kept searching,
One day I found someone,
They saw I was heartbroken,
But they picked me up anyway,
Carrying me on their journey,
Together we searched far and wide,
Feeling like a body without a spirit,
Another step unobtainable,
Still held I froze inside and out,
Frightened and astray,
But not alone...
Misplaced in my head,
In a twisted tangle of fear and doubt,
A lone and recognisable figure sat,
Beyond lost, huddled hidden in the centre.
It took soft words often spoken,
A warm open heart,
Compassion and understanding,
Loving hands reaching down,
That’s what it took to pick me up.
Carried no more,
All the best
