June 5-6, 2018

 

Today = One. More. Day.

 

God has made this life

so abundant in love

so bursting with joy

we need but reach out

to enjoy His lavish gift

clutching it

more closely than breath

desperately tight

life-preserver-like

on oceans storming dark

that

every time I learn

another one has gone

the way of their own hands

I am of two minds

 

I am grieved

by their loss

to have seen His joy

grabbed at it and missed

is the saddest of all sadnesses

 

yet relieved

I still live

I have seen another dawn

my own darknesses

have not won

 


Each New Day A Miracle
