Heaven is Waiting

Carefully written on journal page Unknown woman's broken heart Widowed at so young an age Tears on date life fell apart. Writing of love filled with passion Two souls who denied mortality Parted in most brutal fashion Such is nature of war's reality. His spirit she felt, held so dear Sustaining her through lonely years Hair turned silver eyes grew dim She wrote of heaven, faith and him.

Delice, A poignant poem with a gloomy scene. In hostilities and battles, depravity is quite often an occurrence. Wishing you the best of success in the contest

It definitely is cooler this morning, think we are heading for a thunderstorm, we could do with some rain. The weather patterns are totally out of sync, floods and fires, chaos that besets people. I must not complain over our weather. Stay safe and well Tom...Delice
