The last of fading light slips in my room
To cast its shadows long across the floor
The sun it seems is bowing to the gloom
Of looming painful night forevermore.

For beaconís light I search the lonely shore
Horizon scan for any glimpse at all
The pain from out my soul begins to pour
As crashing waves of grief cause me to fall.

My heart courageous beats yet canít forestall
The ravages this storm shall surely wreak
In youth I thought Iíd rise above the pall
Of suffering, enshrouded days so bleak.

Yet agony, at last, I call you friend
For to His side youíve led me in the end.




 Denise

And slight is the sting of his trouble
Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~

Denise this is so familiar, I too have found Him only through alot of pain. It was about the time I couldn't stand any more and surrendered that He took over. Great poem!

I like the fact that "He maketh His light to SHINE out of the darkness."  I sympathize with you for the troubles which you must face, but I also rejoice with you, as it brings you closer to Him.
God bless you Friend,   David
