Naming the Nomad

Contributed by Voice of the silent on Tuesday, 1st September 2020 @ 07:14:56 AM in AEST
Topic: oops

Nameless noman wandering this desert
Years of pain and hurt
Has jaded me to trust

Always forward but never moving
Lost in time in traction

A hand on my shoulder
Stopped me to say hi
That/'/s when I met her
She wouldn/'/t give up until I tried

She led me forward
Always forward in this endless desert
Slowly the hurt
Begins to fade

She built an oasis
Told me that this is for us
Now I don/'/t have to wander
Rest is bliss

No longer so alone
No longer a nameless wandering nomad
Now in my oasis home
I/'/ve become known as Dad

Aw, a deeply sweet poem. I love "Always forward never moving", such a clever line.

"Amazing what changes with but the passage of time"

So true but after too much time it isn`t positive..
You know?

a good lady
staid with you
through many moons
made you her own
whilst you slept

in fitful slumber
awkwardly unsure
of who you were

she cared about you
finally you realized
That is good :)
not sure if emoticons work
