Some Days

Some days I cry
and I cannot even fathom why
except that pain is on the rise again
so I clasp my arms around myself and then

as I would for any child
I rock myself so gentle, mild
imagining
that everything

will be all right
and I make it through yet one more night
alone
wishing only for the warmth of home

to comfort and to guide
to love away this pain inside
of me
