I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
No one knows about life is about her feeling sad when he turns away when he is immersed with fear. He doesn't realize that love can change the outcome of anything. She knows she would not turn her back on him. She prays God teaches him fear does not stop love. Showing him how to enjoy each gift life gives to him without preparing for an unknown outcome.
"Stand by Me" by John Lennon
"No One Knows"
It saddens her heart
when he shuts the door on their love,
running as fast as he can to hide his fear,
trying to conceal the real reason he left,
not understanding love has healing powers.
She knows if life deals him a bad hand,
her back will not turn,
her feet will stand firmly planted beside him
tackling any bumps along the way.
She prays God shows him
fear does not stop love,
teaching him to value each moment,
enjoying life’s gift
with no need to look ahead
preparing for what is unknown.
