Day’s End

And, as the days endcomes to a close,I lie awake and ponder;what will the year bring,an end to this Covid thing? I close my eyesand dream once more,of social gatherings;long-needed hugsand heartstring tugs. My mind wandersto the heroes of these days,those who keep us going;to all who have lost,theirs is the cost. Lockdown, stay home,keepContinue reading “Day’s End”

Child of the Light

The darkness chases me always,with an awful menacing might;though it may try to dissuade me,I will not let go of my light. For God’s love is my armour,His light my soul surrounds;His legion of angels assist me,as do saints with their haloed crowns. The light will shine through the darkness,chasing the shadows away;all my anxiety,Continue reading “Child of the Light”

Throw Back Your Tears

Will you travel down the road of loneliness,or will you run down the path of love?Will you walk beside me in your journey,or walk on, and away with a shove? Do not disappear inside of your loneliness,for your loneliness can only bring pain;and, without having known some kind of love,you wouldn’t know it is possibleContinue reading “Throw Back Your Tears”

Peace Amid the Turmoil

The storm rages,reaching outward,ripping, tearing,causing havoc.But, in the midst of the stormthere is a quiet,a calm that centres,a peace to be found. Though angry words fly,armed only to hurt,meant to bring pain,they can’t break through.The wall is strong,a beacon from the soul,a light of love,to wrap yourself around. Fear not the trials,stand strong,hold fast,to faith,Continue reading “Peace Amid the Turmoil”

A Star Comes

A Christmas star cameto show the way,to where in a mangera baby did lay. He brought joy,an end to strifeand gave the giftof eternal life. He healed the sickand welcomed the poor;walked on waterand plenty more. The shepherds followed,the wise men came;to see a newborn king,not knowing even his name. The star shone brightfor allContinue reading “A Star Comes”

Peace Within

Turmoil surrounds us;sadness and despaircoiling their wayaround and aroundlooking for a way through. Our soul reaches out,shining brightto dispel the darkness;leaving a doorwayfor hope to enter in. Still, the darkness battles,ever trying to drag us down;ever looking for a wayto pull us out of ourselves,hiding joy from our view. But Spirit gently calls us,embracing usContinue reading “Peace Within”

I Shall Rise

When I’ve fallen,I shall rise;time and time again,to stand,stand in the face of defeatand try once more. I rise with hope in my heart,for hope is eternal;coming on the wingsof a promise;a promise of something better,something joyous. And when the enemy callsI shall shine;shine like the burning sun,full of hope and love;a warrior of ChristcastingContinue reading “I Shall Rise”

Ready Our Heart

We buy online,we clean, wrap and bake;with careful splendourwe decorate. We send cardsof good wishesand bring out thegood dishes. We chat on zoom,and also on Skype;a few seasonal emailsand posts we do type. We remember the past,and days of our youth;hot chocolate and cookiesfor our sweet tooth. Though this year is different,not as joyous aContinue reading “Ready Our Heart”

A Heart Torn

A tear,sliding gently,trying to escapeand fallinto a pool of sorrow. Lost dreams,once written,desired to be fulfilledbut pushedalways forward til the morrow. So many things,left undone,leaving a holeto be filledwhere happiness once flowed. Sadness falling,covering all,like a blanketforgottenneeding to be stowed. A void,in need of filling,darkness,vast and emptyevery night and morn. This is loss,and grief,and miseryforContinue reading “A Heart Torn”

The Strength of the Spirit Will Carry Me

Into the abyss, I go,to drop the chains that bind;to free the sorrowful thoughts,that toil within my mind. Down, down, down,to rid myself of fear;never once releasing the light,ever and always keeping it near. All the hurts that scar me,I drop and watch them fall;as forgiveness rises up,until there is no pain at all. TheContinue reading “The Strength of the Spirit Will Carry Me”
