Shades Of Sorrow - Poem by Lillian Jamison

To find a brighter place
To look to the sky
To see it is blue
Instead of pale grey

To wish for the sorrow
To exit my being
To relax in contentment
When I wake tomorrow

To live for each day
Create lifes tapestry brighter
To take my brush and paint
These shades of sorrow away

    Listen to Fleur de lys...as for every dark shade there be a bright shade to off-set it,
    and it is the dark hues that we cannot clearly see, and tend to blind us, - ruin the gorgeous scape not so far over that hill of things to come...Don't slip and tumble backwards as you are closer than you think to the hilltop, and brighter shades of life!

    Dear Lillian, may the eminent Spring not far away in your part of the world bring much brighter shades of contentment and joy to the landscape that surrounds. And knowing your strength and beauty of character I am confident you will indeed brush and paint all the sorrow away. (Report) Reply
