In Silent Hours, When Hope May Truly Touch

In Silent Hours, When Hope May Truly Touch In that Silent hour, reflecting on life Its bitter and sour, constant daily strife That slow aching darkness of midnight black Woes of destiny that throws us off track Cast into swollen streams surging along Weeping melody from life's sadder songs, A stab, a cut against the growing pain Loss, where we say never, never again! In Silent hours, pondering sweeter gifts Of Love, Friendship, Dawn's Glow that so uplifts Dare we this thought thus gratefully embrace We are all brothers, in this human race. In Silent hours, when Hope may truly touch Faith joins Love's power, when Life seems too much! Sonnet, 6/23/2020 Reflection in Silence Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Silent One
