A Haiku - Courage
The courageous are everywhere that turmoil and struggle exist.
If you know of a courageous person, follow their example.
Health deteriorates, shocks.
Children drift away.
But courage gives strength to pray.
Strive on; hope today.
When strength too is gone,
And night sets in, sleep denied,
Take heart. You will win.
Angels with you now
Know each and all your wishes.
Fresh days lie ahead.
Could we but see days
Bright and blue with sunshine too,
Courage never dies.
Valor is found here.
It rests in the heart and soul.
Courage true abounds.
Feel God grant your wish,
Omnipotent, sure, ... He can
Fresh lifetime give you.
