Keep Every Dream Alive

This week I asked my Facebook friends to give me a title for a story that I need to write every Thursday!
Keep Every Dream Alive, is  today’s title given to me by Sammie who like me, is also a single parent. Keep Every Dream Alive is also Sammie’s 2017 theme for her daughter who received her cochlear implant in 2014.

Sammie this poem is for you.

When you feel forlorn
Lost and torn by society’s mythical scorn
Depleted and defeated
Enraged while feeling caged and betrayed

Remember the treasured trove in the fibre of your being

Into the depths of your darkness
Reach gently for your heart as it falters
Feel that tingling in your fingers?

Remember the treasured trove in the depths of your soul

Do you feel the change in your heartbeat?
Now silence your mind and reach within
Close your eyes and breath in the calming tide

Remember the treasured trove that pumps life through your veins

Now close your eyes and find her light
Breath gently and enter the depths of your self
Find your treasured trove as it lay hidden in the chaos of your mind
Still the voices raging with fear, regret, uncertainty and loss

Breath deep, breath slow
Let the darkness embrace you and then let go of the fear
Now feel the warmth tingling in your hand – the light within

This, the hope that flows through your veins
The strength that electrifies the fibre of your being
This, the faith that nurtures your soul

Here in the silence, in the depths of the dark, holding onto her light,
This, your treasured trove, always hidden in the depths of your being
Hold on to these treasured gifts of hope, strength and faith
Here in the silence, in the depths of the dark, holding onto her light;

YOU!

This, your treasured trove, always hidden in the depths of your being
Hold on to these treasured gifts of hope, strength and faith

Keep Every Dream Alive, Believe in Yourself
