The Magic Between The Pages

Come escape with me

The world is truly a magical place

Each night we lay down with hope,

That we’ll see another dawn rising

As we balance on life’s tightrope.

——

There are days that are sheer bliss

Times where you are kicked hard,

Still others where you have to fight

Many days that leave you scarred.

——

We find love in unexpected places

Betrayal we process in total shock,

Friendships that helps us through

When we hit hard rock after rock.

——

We do all we can for each other

Treasuring the moments we share,

Hoping to stall that end of our time

While fighting and living with care.

——

There are times when we wonder

Will we ever get through the pain,

If we will ever see the sun shining

As it pours rain again and again.

——

On those days I hide away alone

Knowing that I’m battling to cope,

I open the pages of a good book

Anticipating the escape and hope.

——

As I open those first few pages

Magic escapes in a ray of light,

Surrounding me with my dreams

Helping me succeed in my fight.
