Quietly Important

She’s quietly important, but
She’s on the brink
I can feel her slipping away

She’s the constant presence
The steadying moon
The rhythm of the tidal sway

She’s fading fast, but
Don’t let go
Please, please just stay

She’s quietly important
Unobtrusively essential
In a simple, unassuming way

She’s that single thread
Don’t pluck it out
Or the whole thing starts to fray

She’s clinging to life
So close your eyes
Find the strength to pray

She’s quietly important, and
Without her presence
Without her

It’s unbearable to say

I bake. I write. What goes better together than a good story and a delicious fresh-baked pastry? Nothing. And I can give you both. Grab a hot cuppa and join me.
