Rookie - 14 Points (February 27 1947 / Middletown New York)

My Valley of Hills

From the hills afar and the valley below
could feel the earth shatter as you broke
my tender heart

Upon the valley to the hills carraiges
without any horses were all standing

Empty, and vacant with no existiing
power to ignite its lonely flame has
carried on without one less heart

As I climed each hill, and crept into
each new valley alone looking for
a ray of hope and clinging for any ray
of sunshine that only too proved
to become fruitless

Looking back now, I can understand
and thank you for the hills and valleys
inbetween what once was ever so
sweet, but now must paint a different
color to protect its hue.........

    In this life we wil have many hills to climbs
    meaning many disappointments and hurts
    but it brings me joy to know God is there
    to help us climb those hills and guide
    us every step of the way...ENJOYED! ! !

    I understand the feeling here Bonnie, but now it is time to look beyond those hills
    and as each mighty giant is conquered you will realise your true potential on seeing the beautiful veiws on the other side, , , where all the horses roam and no cart is left abandoned
