The Moon

Mighty weight shouldered  
battling to be well  
protecting those you cherish  
despite terror that swells  
Unfeigned bravery observed  
allowing fear permission  
an understood ambivalence  
seeking promise of remission  
Wishing for you grace  
calm in the storm you endure  
solace if afraid  
as you wage war against the obscure  
Knowing you are pulling  
deep upon courage to fight  
hold steadfast  
even the darkest shadows  
possess a source of light  
Prayers for a spirit of resilience  
sharing hope to ease your soul  
and a reminder of the moon  
proving you are strong enough  
even when not feeling whole
