Star Of Joy (poem)

Inspired by Linda (lrc7815)

Shadows passing winter’s night

Teardrops waiting out of sight

Gloom consumes the last of light

Veils reveal approaching blight


Silence ticking life away

Clouds of doubt forecast dismay

Sorrow stalks to rule the day

Streets where empty souls do stray


Bright is the star to this night

Shining response toward dismay

A smile in another’s day

Comforting hand against blight


Bright star casting doubt away

Such hope fills hearts at your sight

Candles soon pass on your light

And in your footsteps they stray


Your Joy overwhelms all blight

Pure Joy the source of your light

And while your Joy restores sight

Shadows pass the winter’s night

I went back to check on Linda but got sidetracked by your comment and most beautifully fitting tribute to our friend.

Voted UP and ABI. Hugs, Maria
