The Distant light

Sadness takes its cheerles flight again As these tears I try to fight again Its hard to even comprehend If things will become right again Time will heal the heart's sorrow Until then, pain becomes my plight again Cherished memories I hold dear Waiting for the dawn to shine bright again Finding comfort in the scriptures Its truth will bring the light again 9-10-2020 Ghazal Contest Sponsor: Silent One

The scriptures are comforting Joseph and you will get comfort and peace of mind from them, meanwhile memories will always stay, and that is sweet and kind and very beautiful. Great Ghazal and best wishes for the contest. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.
