Apparition…

I’ve met her before….

she came down from the mountain
stood in the road and offered a smile
as I passed her on my way to the crusade

she cheered my name
dust swirling, bronze handled
blood and fire in the arena

I have caught her eye fire gaze
in the fog
across the rails of my ship
as we set sail

In lightning storms and thunder
under my 8-year-old covers
I have felt her hand in mine
and she whispered solace

I hear her voice
in my soul
and it holds me
when I am broken
and alone

When I am lost
I follow the sound of her heartbeat
And it leads me
home
