Run to You – Written May 2015 (Aged 40)

Run to You

i am collecting stars
i carry them in my mind
i am waiting –
for the cup to actually have feeling
when we hold each other
and i can say –
we have travelled and made it home
i am collecting ideas
but they are only the cut out –
to every jigsaw –
i have ever owned
and since these days of kickback
i just do not want to feel alone
i work to build these tracks
to lay off the full circles
to make sure sadness is not so sad
i am waiting –
for the day when clumsy –
does not find me so easily
i am collecting stars
i carry them under my arms
i find you
i run to you
and stay within the comfort of your arms
