Darling’s poem she wrote for Sir not long after leaving Australia.


Deep inside my heart is a place that I thought was lost

I hid it, because it was more than I wanted to bear

I didn’t understand the price I paid, nor did I count the cost

I thought I was alone; no one to share

I didn’t realize the vital, missing piece

Was a part of me that couldn’t be duplicated or replaced

Neglecting myself was leaving me damaged and incomplete

A small but significant void – an an empty space

A hand reached out and helped me off the ground

I stood once again and wondered how you knew

Uncovered – that hidden place was found

You gave me back myself –  from somewhere inside of you

  3. “you gave me back myself, from inside of you”! How eloquent. Just what I would have liked to write, thought I could not have come up with the right combination of words ever..

    Ms.Darling, you are awesome!
