Thorns for a crown

Thorns for a crown

When darkness surrounded
and threatened to envelop you,
My love to you abounded
with a heartache that I felt too.
You searched for me in anguish,
shouting at my inability to hear,
with your burden not relinquished,
never knowing I was near.
You clung tightly to your trouble,
attempting to soften its impact,
but it only seemed to double,
with your faltering in faith and fact.
It is time to loosen and let go
those things that dragged you down
These are not seeds by your life sown
Come, swap your thorns for a crown.
