The Wall

Pain erects a snowy wall,

a barrier that you must climb.

To get to me, you’ll have to crawl

around, or over, or in time

your love must melt what hems me in,

breathe warmth of hope in coldest heart;

springtime grace where ice has been

to help this chasm fall apart.

    I’m going to echo Sis Deb’s comment!!

        I should always wait for her to get here ahead of me–then I wouldn’t have to think up a creative response! Okay, this is off-topic, but have you seen the movie, “Christmas Carol: the Movie”? It’s an animated version of the Dickens story, made in 2001–it’s been running on Cable for at least a month, but I really like it; and the final song is a haunting heart-grabber. So don’t listen to it unless you’re feeling “sturdy”, or have tons of tissues…

        No, I haven’t seen it. Sounds good…

        It really is–though “animated”, it’s much deeper than a cartoon.
