So Lost, Light Temporarily Eludes

So Lost, Light Temporarily Eludes

Once a man lost saw nothing but a stone wall
 misery and blues ever since his great fall
So lost that the stars failed to shine
 so blue he could not walk a straight line

Soon began to share his misery and self hate
 blamed his torment on life and dark fate
Dark spirit had grabbed and crushed his soul
 eyes blinded he could not ever see a goal

Then one day Love and Mercy came a calling
 gifted a blessing to counter his great falling
Light opened those very sad and shut eyes
 clouds flew away as suddenly Sun filled sky
As love sent heart into his opening mind
 his soul it's way back home soon did find
Beauty and life soon took him on a new path
 away from darkness and former hating wrath

Once a man was lost with little hope of healing
Such was before Love gave his heart renewed feeling!

Inspired by Peter's Duggan's poem to a fine lady that needs
 cheering. Dedicated to that fine person and I pray this 
write brings her some measure of hope and bright cheering....
A silence stilled the beauty of a flower
blues came forth to steal more power
Hope sent in a massive charge to slay
love and mercy gifted when we pray.

I too was once so very, very lost 
prayer was sent and darkness defeated by God's amazing grace..

    This is a most incredible poem my friend, Robert. One that i can totally relate to. My trek back from darkness came to me through self acceptance, which brought self understanding, and then Joy. There was not much of my marriage left, and joy brought it all together. Beautiful write, mate....peter
