New Steps – A Poem

Share This

Deal with sadness
sorrow, strife. 
Shadows dark, 
a challenged life.
See the clouds 
throughout each day, 
tinged with hope 
and words we pray.
as we grieve.
Feelings tucked, 
not on our sleeve.
Brave and strong, 
except for pain. 
Fight the war, 
begin again.
has won the day, 
helped us struggle,
find our way.
Blessings simple, 
sometimes small, 
find the humor, 
through it all. 
Close my eyes 
and look for peace, 
Wish the struggles 
ease or cease.
Given time 
a gift for sure, 
New steps coming 
must endure.
Help surround me 
give me grace.
Heart and mind 
I see your face.
Keep us in 
your tender care, 
held in faith 
we'll meet you there.
