A poem every day.
Shadows Rising Oct 2014
Soaking wet
With tears of joy
You embrace my face
How we both have waited for this

Threw all the nights alone
For all the pain felt
For all the letters that came
and for the ones that didn't

The tightening of our soul's
The shortening of our life span
Even after all this
We held on

Now the war is over
and the journey can begin
A family stuck in gridlock
Can now be whole again
Being released from prison is joy some will never know....

— The End —
