Stay True to Love

Stay true to love ‘though ebbs and flows may come; Take hold of joy and treasures it may hold. Allow not sin or sorrow find a home, Invest your heart in beauty, peace untold. Resist death’s grip, remember pain will pass; Wake filled with hope, embrace the new-lit morn. As night gloom falls, dark spirits may hold fast Yet dark will fade into a day fresh-born. Trust memory to keep you safe from harm, On its sweet wings find peace in times of strain; Trust each refrain to sweep you in its arms. Have faith in friends, let family ordain Each stumbling step will finish in a dance. Stay true to love, its promises are dear; Take hold of joy, give life its proper chance And let no man invest you with his fear. Raise up your eyes, in heaven stake your dream; Stay true to love and life you will redeem. By Deb Radke for Linda-Marie's contest 'Stairway to the Stars'
