The ballet dancer
Perfecting her heart with grace
Hiding her sore heart

The slight light
Of the dawn
Brings dread
When it should bring hope
What happened?
When did the light

The House of Bailey

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Heart lifts
When I lift him high
Heart skips
With her every kiss
Through darkness and troubled times
Our place has held us
I return with joy
To the walls
My son
My wife
My home
