Dip my Head

I dip my head
under the water, to be re-assured
my heart still beats
rhythmic and strong
pulsing life throughout my body
I hold my breath, it gently slows
but
just like my grief
eventually
I must let go

  2. Hello Claudette, I haven’t been to your blog for ages, so catching up. I try not to comment on too many older posts, but a ‘like’ just wasn’t good enough for these lovely words. Beautiful. ❤

      I am happy for you to comment on old or new. I think some of my best stuff is stuck in the past 😉
      This little poem arose in my mind and I had to keep reciting it till I got to the computer some time later.
