! A Light In The Darkness

In the darkness of your thoughts
Created by circumstances
Both complex and overwhelming,
When no amount of spirits
Or conversation within yourself
Can erase the images imprinted
On your mind............................

Let me lift you out of suffering
On angel wings to lofty heights
Where nothing can hurt you
Where nothing is relevent
But the blessings of the moment
And the air that we breathe............

Let me wrap you in my warm embrace
And hold you close to my heart
With love and understanding
Beyond the need for mortal words
Your darkness will be lifted
And your spirit shall fly free........

The light in your darkness......let me be.

    It takes strength without bounds or bonds to offer oneself so completely as offered so poetically in this triumph of spirit. To recognize so completely the need to do so is more than strength, it is the most selfless form of giving there is. Linda, this poem is excellent in every way.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
