Gentle Souls and Autumn Leaves

The thoughts of others that feel what I struggle to say …

GENTLE SOULS

GENTLE SOULS

Gentle souls, like a butterfly

Bear the weight upon their wings

They’re sensitive, caring

They feel the heartache of things

When you see them flitting, dancing

And you think they’re so carefree

Take a look into their eyes

You’ll see the tears of empathy

Some take their caring as weakness

But they couldn’t be more wrong

For strength comes in the breaking

In holding the pieces to stay strong

It doesn’t take any effort

To simply not care

To not shoulder a burden

Or to not feel their despair

Gentle souls, like a butterfly

Bear the weight upon their wings

Though it crushes and pains their heart

They only think of the good that it brings
