Little Savior (Poem)

Little Savior


I wandered deep into the darkest forest

To set it alight, to burn the night

But you drew me back

Begged that I may come back to light


And when I screamed

a wolf’s cry in the dark

your tiny trinket hands

clung to me like bark


Whispering your love like fog

you sedated the wood

Hushing my thousand voices

Bringing back the good


I faltered, yet still you fluttered

your little lively heart – blessing me,

setting my eyes

upon the tallest tree


So we climbed up and traced

the way the leafy veins run

and with baby blanket wings

leapt into the sun
