11.
Heaven...

The silent stillness covers me in darkness
and whispers of my thoughts seem far away
and breathing echoes gently at the edges of my soul
as my eyelids say farewell to stressful days
...

12.
Awed…

Have you ever watched the wonder of a child
When seeing sunlight breaking through the clouds
When feeling snowflakes land upon a fingertip
Or walking hand in hand without a sound…
...

13.
Rest In Him

Rock-a-bye my baby
Dream of sweeter days
When everything was sweetness
And sadness flew away
...

14.
Hope…

I watch him playing from across the space
Interacting with a grand delight
And lose myself in memory of days, not long ago
When this was but a dream I didn’t see
...

15.
Applying Faith…

Her heart beats pitter pat; pitter pat
thump, thump; thump, thump…
Knocking in a chest crammed full, with dread
Against thin walls, which fortified, are struggling
...

16.
Tongue-Tied…

On the tip of his tongue, a circuit breaks
It steps and stops, just shy of its fruition
A halted moment, faltered, unable to give birth
To intelligent ideas behind his vision
...

17.
We Are What They See…

Our hands are painted brightly with our deeds
Our souls dyed with the pacts which we have made
Our hearts are tinted with the shelter of our dreams
We’ve dreamt of for ourselves and for our blood
...

18.
Troubled...

In the quiet, in the dark,
in the undiscovered depths
Deep within the caverns’ grasping, gasping breadth
...

19.
My Cardinal...

As sentinel he sits within the frigid scene
Solitary
Saturated
Sightless
...

20.
Choices…

It’s all in the perspective
Within the point of view
Is life a trial?
Is life a joy?
...
