Faith is the light of the next step
Illuminating a way ahead,
Without revealing the direction.
Faith will sustain, and comfort
What is this feeling within my heart;
Concealed by daylight hours, in a shroud of taut restraint.
Winter evenings consume, yesterdays pursue me,
Smiling, speaking, acting – I can cope, I can cope….
There’s a new leaf upon the Tree
A thousand, thousand have been before
In the life of this great tree
Yet, the Tree rejoices, and is glad
Son of my mother
time of fear a friend
time of adversity a brother
time of laughter, a comrade
Is it possible?
Can it be done?
To capture Joy
Loves smile begun
Busy crowds, lonely hearts, broken dreams
Shopping for yesterday.
Visiting the shared moments,
In all the familiar places
And the devil took the high ground
And the Angels took the rest
The Angels stood and waited
Whilst the devil did his best
There are days of sun
And days of rain
Days of joy
And Days of Pain
