Immortal Light

Almost, almost, my light with yours went dark;
My spirit comatose, could it still live?
God pitied me. He touched and found a spark;
He showed me I had yet a bit to give.
Reluctantly, I stirred and took his hand;
He gently lifted me to firmer ground.
With his sure help I found a way to stand,
To set you free, your spirit homeward bound.

I tried to keep you here by force of will;
But God had plans which were no part of mine.
Your light is strong enough to linger still;
God's breath has given it immortal shine.
Each night I search the Heavens for new star
He promised he would show me from afar.

God's breath has given it immortal shine.
Each night I search the Heavens for new star

So very beautiful Joyce.

The box has been checked for great sentimental value. Evidenced here it is that God has blessed you with much much more to give... I believe, as you have expressed, that we will truly shine as the stars one day. (Amen)  Keep your eyes and heart open and it will be as you have written this I am certain.  A beautiful write and a wonderful way to remember your loved one. God Bless.

Another very beautiful poem, Joyce! I love the imagery you use. And may God help us to keep finding that spark in every relationship that seems to dim!

Joyce:  A wonderful poem and I'm sure your husband would be proud of you and what you have accomplished, in his absence.  Your family must also feel that same pride. I am voting for this one.

This sure has a lot of melancholy in it.  Very well written, and sad, too.

"...My spirit comatose, could it still live?
God pitied me. He touched and found a spark;
He showed me I had yet a bit to give...."

Sometimes we need a helping hand
and are fortunate to be able to
recognize it.

Lovely poem, Joyce. *s

When you think you have heard it all,
listen more closely.

Joyce, my friend, I think that no book would be complete without this lovely collection of thoughts.  What a beautiful and hopeful piece of writing!

Accept these small gifts from my gypsy soul, and let the magik happen!  ~~S~~
