A poem inspired by a dark, cold, cloudy day and attempting to find the silver lining with two not-so-happy teenagers. All while decorating for the holidays. It must have been Polar Opposites Day and I just didn’t realize. 😀
When we lose our HOPE, let us remind one another
That there is warmth and love ahead, no matter how bleak.
When our hearts search in vain for the reassurance of PEACE
Let us be safe harbors of listening ears and kindest speech.
When in our desolation we do not know what to BELIEVE
Let us trust our inner knowing that will lead us to relief.
When CALM becomes a distant dream in constant juxtapose
Let us be the soothing presence that always feels like home.
When aching dulls the joy that makes our hearts feel BRIGHT
Let us shed our needed tears to make room for the light.
