! A Light In The Darkness - Poem by Linda Ori

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.

    An aching heart needs to be held, giving it hope and faith in tomorrow. To love and never count the cost is a spiritual connection with God. Love this poem. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Holding an aching heart close to yours, in love and understanding, is way beyond the need for words... if only we can extend this love to make the world a better place- a beautiful soulsearching write Linda (Report) Reply

    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.
