The Fragile Cord
Sidelined upon the horizon
I hover out of focus
whisper patient encouragement,
watch as it whistles past
remind myself for the hundredth time
wisdom often isn't from success,
it is lessons learned from our failings.
Forever connected by a fragile cord,
I watch and learn how to truly pray
from my heart.
