  • soothe me,
    distract me, calm me,
    carry me off
    far from strife and worry
    little nothings in the wind

    my head banged
    on a blue sky
    futility, anguish
    sore and tired
    ground down
    to the bone
    a weary soul

    until a breeze
    caressed my cheek
    played with my hair
    lifted my spirit, restored hope
    just the whispers
    of little nothings
    that meant everything
    to me
