Songs of Solace

solace-by-the-sea-peg-reynolds

Come lay your head in my lap, little one

And tell me of the world that trampled your dreams

Come lay your head in my lap, little one

And tell me of the words which broke your heart

Come lay your head in my lap, little one

And tell me how the time stifled your screams

Come lay your head in my lap, little one

And tell me how the looks acted like a sharp dart

 

Come lay your head in my lap, little one

And tell me all and tell me more

Come lay your head in my lap, little one

And show me your soul, all blood and gore

 

Come lay your head in my lap, little one

And cry some and then some more

Come lay your head in my lap, little one

And bare it all, your feelings tender and sour

 

Fear not, I will reweave your dreams

And mend your broken heart

Fear not, I will kiss away your screams

And bless you with a fresh start

 

Fear not, I will sooth away your pain

And wipe all frustration

Fear not, I will bring the fresh rain

And smooth away all agitation

 

Come lay your head in my lap, little one

Come lay your head in my lap, little one

  1. I just ask How….??
    How can I tell You, what trampled my dreams
    How to utter the words, that broke my heart
    Talk about the time, that stifled my screams

    I just ask How….??
    How to tell about the simple small things
    That led to something complete
    How to show You, My soul, all blood and gore

    I just ask How….??
    How to bare it all, My feeling tender and sour
    I fear that if I get started……
    I will definitely cry…. And then cry some more
    But talking about it, I can’t any more

    Mending my broken heart, is not an easy chore
    My screams are no longer audible
    Drowned in the abyss of cruel silence

    There is not really much that can be done
    Not much that can soothe my pain
    Nothing that would rid me of my frustration

    I do however love the rain
    raindrops trickling down my withered face
    Secretly wiping away my tears
    Keeping up appearances…. Even somewhat dignified

    My dreams need not be rewoven
    Because they never changed….
    I wish I could tell You….
    I just wonder How….??

      • Now that is not fair…. And neither the intention.

        Your writing inspired me….. And that should tell You everything You need to know about the unfairly referenced “lesser query”.

        I really do appreciate Your Gracious Remarks.

        I hope You keep writing and keep inspiring people.

        You light up the black void in me……. Making the “black” spill out thoughts on paper… in words….
