For Writer's Island Prompt #10 for 2011: Secret
There was a moment in my life
When the secret was told
And I was taken
From all that I knew.
Falling into a pit of loneliness,
Visions of terror spinning round my mind
Panic tapping at the door of sanity
I was lost.
In that moment I found sanctuary
In your care.
And in your believing
I began to heal.
Quiet moments; quiet voices
Gentle comfort slowly changed
Nights of despair
Into hope for bright tomorrows.
Perhaps in time my silenced spirit
Would emerge and sing once more
Because you gave me refuge in trust.
Did I ever thank you?
