I tried to preserve what I could not keep.

As if, it was all up to me.

I clung to what I could not hold.

Pressing hard to be bold.

In the end I could not grasp,

what was never meant to last.

Afraid to fall out of their love.

well it took a fall to look above.

It is you who preserves me.

It is you who stands beside me.

I am not afraid,

I don’t need to be brave.

I will cry in your loving arms.

I will stare at your beautiful charm.

I tried to preserve,

What you were meant to preserve.

Hi, I am R.D. Jess. I am a christian writer and postpartum doula. My relationship with my God is not a religion but a state of who I am. I love being there for others and find that writing the hard truth is the best way to make people feel less alone.
