familiar face

you stood strong

sturdy and steady

all the while by my side

holding me up

when everyone else fell

into the night

casting off these days

for walks along

golden paths in

brand new bodies

you stayed

here with me

carrying my load

heavy as it could be

hard as I am

shell or nut

difficult to crack

and when I cracked

you still remained

picking up my pieces

and putting them

somewhere for safe keeping

until I could put them

in a new order

until I was again

someone you somewhat

resembled at some time

in some other place

and some of me

was a familiar face

that you still wanted to see
