Photo 46

I found myself today

I had been lost in the moment

as I walked toward a distant light

I looked upward to see the most brilliant blue

but not to feel it; I breathed deeply

without holding my shallow breath

Beauty filled these brimming eyes as

I stood before an ever-changing world

I saw the hope of my future while

the despair of my past faded from view

And although death’s darkness had

stolen irretrievable bits of my heart

life firmly grasped my waiting hands






Must admit

that though about to quit

time taking over bit by bit

just wouldn’t give doubt the benefit

held onto gathered wits

then alas, I found it

shining and brightly lit

HOPE, on the face of it
