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.

-R.D. Jess

I am a lover of writings and over the years I have collected a handful of poems and stories I have written. The more I wrote the more I realized I should do something with it, besides putting it in a box.
