How can I measure your blank stare?
How can I let you know I’m there?
Regular visits with your soul,
while keeping my feelings controlled.
How can I make you more aware?
How can I show how much I care?
Hold your hands till our breaths connect.
pray to comfort painful unrest.
How can I prevent all despair?
How can this life be so unfair?
Cradle you while releasing fears,
tell happy tales to absorb tears.
How can I open you to share?
How can I tempt you so you dare?
Share my mind and my spirit too.
Know deep inside wishes come true.
How can I hold faith and prepare?
How can my love serve to repair?
Care for you with each passing day.
Tend to myself in every way.
– Grace Y. Estevez-Reddy
My poem “Caretaker” was published on The Writers Club today. This was my first time publishing with them and so I decided to follow this weeks prompt of well being. I would like to thank their team for showcasing this piece.
