Evening Star

To my love wherever you are
I pray you shine my Evening Star

Sometimes in life we lose our way
Fall into the trap of living yesterday

Our memories become all that we are
For we have not just fell we fell to far

It can affect the happy as well as the sad
Can’t measure good till you weigh out the bad

More we hurt the deeper we fall
Be still the darkness of it all

At times reflection is a winning game
Face the fear of admitting our shame

Know that after we process our yesterday
We will no longer have that price to pay

Once we confess the sins we have done
Darkness flees from the light of the Son

To my precious love wherever you are
Please shine brightly my Evening Star

Written to my wife while I was in Prison
and lost until we were looking through
some old letters.

    Old letters hold such vast landscapes of life for all --- we should do a contest on them. I love this write, and hope your wife read your poems to understand the measure of your devotion to her. One love
