Upon The Loss Of A Loved One - Poem by Robert J. Bartlett

When the road ahead
Seems dark and dreary,
That's when our faith kicks in.

When you want to cry
But are too tired to try,
That's when your faith kicks in.

When that face in the night
Seems merry and bright,
That's when our faith kicks in.

When the warmth that we favor
Is too distant to savor,
That's when our faith kicks in.

When the Angel of God
We can thank and applaud,
That's when our faith kicks in.

When the Hand of the Almighty
Supports us forthrightly,
That's when our faith has kicked in!

    This is a well-composed triolet, with a wonderful repetitive third line in each stanza! ''That's when our faith kicks in.'' (Report)Reply
