INSPIRATIONAL POEMS

 

 

 

 

 

When you’ve lost all that mattered
Every dream’s been shattered
There’s no friend left to call your own

Each day is one big tempest
Nights are sleepless unrest
You wonder if you’ll always be alone

I have found a place of refuge
Where I escape the deluge
When the storms of life are battering my soul

It is there in quiet solitude
That I regain my fortitude
Once again I am made well and whole

Here my heart begins to sing
I am lifted up on Eagle’s wings
I am at rest and again my spirit soars

His name is a strong tower
He is my source of power
Every day’s a day worth living for

The name of the Lord
Will be your reward
He’ll give you strength to face life every day

He’ll cause the storms to cease
He’ll give you inner peace
But it’s up to you to take the time to pray

    this is a beautiful, beautiful poem…

    Here my heart begins to sing
    I am lifted up on Eagle’s wings
    I am at rest and again my spirit soars

    this stanza in particular really touched me …. just stunning imagery.

    and I love the picture ….

    • Hope…yes indeed, this is a very beautiful poem. I’m sure it has special meaning for a fellow poet like yourself. The stanza you mentioned reminds me of you and your own poetry and pictures. I know Charles will be pleased with your comments. He has sent me a series of 4 poems. Another one will be posted tomorrow. HTH from LLL
