From January 2016.




When Skies Are Dark

When skies are dark
without a guiding star,
you are my lantern-light,
my soul's bright flame.

When icy winds
scorch the grey earth with frost,
you are my April,
my ecstatic spring!

When heartless minds
freeze hope and faith to death,
you are the pulse
of warmth and waking life.

When all the earth
is stricken mute with dread,
you are the voice,
the music, and the dance.

Heartwarming. We should all have such a person in our
Lives. Well written. ‘When all the earth is stricken mute with dread’ - how apt for our days. But they can be borne with someone who can rise above these things.
