My Wall

I have built a wall around me

One that protects me from the pain

And despite how thick or strong it is

The ache comes back again

But even on my worst days

I find a reason to smile

Because I feel the wall come tumbling down

Each time you stop by for a little while

I know that you are with me

I see you in every color of the sky

And when I see dragonflies or hummingbirds

I know that you’ve stopped by

My wall is my protector

But it is also my friend

It allows me to see right through it

So that I don’t miss the messages you send

I know my grief will last forever

And my wall is here to stay

My wall is my protector

It gets me through each day
