Break

Lonely roads and
Changing homes
Are all I know to take
I stay strong
For oh so long
Until I start to break

If it’s me and destiny 
Uncommon twist of fate
But when I see 
Your faith in me
It’s then I start
To break

Take from me
Uncertainty and wash me with 
Your strength 
Shield me from me
Purposely 
Before I even break

When I fail to 
Hold the world 
And crack beneath 
It’s weight
It’s you I see there cheering me
I know I will not break

    This is so true in my life right now as my husband struggles with crippling depression. It’s a never ending job to protect him from his own mind. Beautiful post you have here.

    1. Thank you, J. I have felt it’s sting myself before and I can tell you that he is blessed to have your support through this. It can become quite difficult from either side, but your strength and stability is what he needs now.

      1. What’s keeps me going is believing whole heartedly that love conquers. Even if he rejects my care for five days straight, his acceptance on day six makes my pain and persistence worth it all.
