Discovery Of What Sadness Lies Just Behind The Curtain

Discovery Of What Sadness Lies Just Behind The Curtain Like a pale vapor, time flieth away whose invisible hands each season make some heavenly glory, others dark gray, such blindness, causing ones love to forsake. Like a raging wind, life oft sorrows bring with harsh nights, as God fails to intervene clock slow sounding, sad tick-tocks low sing, of love's deep hurts, where tragedy convenes. Like a weary road, where dusty clouds rise to embrace epic loss and sweet sorrows none so tragic as traps our minds devise, in darkest of hours and hopeless tomorrows. O'lord, will better days ever again return. As we pray for sweet gifts, we did nothing to earn. Robert J. Lindley, 7-21-2020 Sonnet, ( Dark And Tragic, Are The Great Woes Of Man ) Note: Composed today as I have this morn learned of another dear and lifelong friend's sad passing. RJL

Thank you my friend. Sometimes one must think about past life and tragic events that so oft shape us in profound ways. Bearing in mind, what does not kill us, very oft serves to makes us stronger. God bless....

Thank you my friend. Never truer words said. Those saved, will indeed meet again. As God's word can never be broken... We feel sorrow at our loss, yet may in faith see the truth of Light, Salvation and God's Holy words.. God bless..

Thank you my friend. I tried to reply a few moments ago but a new screen popped up showing- "Poet has turned off commenting".. Which is a lie-- I did not turn off commenting. I wonder if this is a hidden thing , that is being done to me?? I refreshed the page got the same lying notice- a cliche perhaps. Then logged out , logged back in and got this page with ability to read your comment and thus reply.. Very Strange... very....
