Tapestry of Life


Tendrils of gold fall over my eyes masking a timid soul.
Alabaster lies beneath woven strands; ev'ry emotion takes its toll.
Pensive am I in all my actions, compassion steers a grateful heart.
Even though I slip into doleful days, each morn I wake to a happy start.
Surefire strength comes from my faith; through God, I overcome.
Together, from joy, sorrow, peace and strife, my love becomes the sum.
Reaching for a promising tomorrow, I build my haven with family.
Yearning to nurture love and life, more enlightened, I hope to be.

    Fantastic write, my friend. I especially loved your 'T" line... so very well done. This will be toppers or else I know nothing of poetry. Hope you enjoyed the wiggles... oh, lol, I am sooooo jealous. Did you 'Play Your Guitar with Murray" and "Wake up Jeff?" My girl has an on and off again love thing going on with Rags. We just borrowed a DVD of Mickey Mouse from the library, her flavour of the week ;-) Your strength glows in this poem, dear. Just lovely. Hugs, Cyndi
