A Light in the Darkness

     A sure as light 
enters into shadow
     So must we realize 
that there is a balm for anxiety and sorrow
That one day we will know peace 
     and that you will be inscribed in the 
book of life 
     and that you will receive 
your just rewards 
    in due time 
Lift your eyes up to the mountains !
See their snow capped peaks!
Somewhere - out of our sight 
there is a power at work 
  which will aid you 
In the difficult struggle 
we call "life"

    Matt, ~ ~ Did you really think I'd leave without stopping by to say Good-bye. Never, Muwahahahaha! Why the word alone sounds -forever and difficult. LOL, I love this place and the poets. A couple of soup friends and I are taking a short vacation. REMEMBER! The Best Thing About Leaving is the "RETURN." I will leave in good faith, in hopes you don't forget me, and you are looking forward in having me visit you and your poems in the future. HAHA, I will bring a new me when I return. "I Can't wait to see you again:) If you ever want me to read a certain poem or you wish to say hi... Drop by my E-Mail Address. :) Sincerely yours ~Always & Forever~ The Sweet Poet Destroyer
