Dear glimmer of hope,
I fix upon your spark,
with every ounce strength,
remaining in this shell.

Shimmering glow of fate,
touched my life,
with such hidden power,
and malevolent despise.

The gods of peace,
leave me in my fear,
Powers of joy and love,
wilting in life's fire.

Valiant grasping,
to hopes tenuous spirit,
with withered claws,
fed only by my heart.

Daily prayers to Gods,
seemingly unanswered,
save for the fact,
I can still pray daily.

Grateful tears slide quietly,
each night as I lay down,
to sleep beside my wife,
for one final time.

Thanks Emmy. Nothing could be a better compliment than the insinuation of power in one's prose.
