Listen to the beat

Here in the dark I reside

Working  for  you ceaselessly no stopping

Taking  the stress for you as you cried

Calming  you, a relief as your tears are  dropping.

 

Holding you, guiding  you, breathe in and breathe out

Lifting  you, carrying you ,each trial, I see you through

Without  me you are nothing. That is true without a doubt.

Supporting you, I protect you  you need me it’s true.

 

You do not  listen to me, nor think of me. You pay me no heed.

You ignore  my warnings, starve me of air  and life

You over work  me  and push and misuse  me until I bleed

You feed me poison  and fast food until it hurts like a knife.

 

 

 

Here in the dark I reside

Working  for  you ceaselessly no stopping

Taking  the stress for you as you cried

Calming  you, a relief as  your tears are dropping.

 

 

Heed me heed  me before it’s  too late

Feel me pounding pound in  your  chest

You ignore me at  your  peril endangering  your fate

If I am not heeded I shall lay you to your rest.

    It took me a few moments to get it, but when I did, my view of your creation and message soared. Well done, Willow. Thank you for your excellent reminder.

    For me, this sounds a lot like an overworked caregiver.
