"Life is my gift and must go on / Yet is not mine to take nor give"

Transcendental Sonnet #1316:

Here in Between Heaven and Hell


I had a love then I had none

One day she was then she was gone

I loved I lost now what do I

Do as my life passes me by?


Life is my gift and must go on

Yet is not mine to take nor give

It is commanded that I live

Until the course of days is run

Which has been given unto me


To span my mortal destiny

To do the very best I can

By doing good by doing well

To be an honest useful man

Here in between heaven and hell

Dear Stevie,
This is a twilight world where the ebb and flow of real life leaves you unaffected and you operate on the strings of a puppeteer you cannot see. It is a place of helplessness and sometimes despair. I hear your lonely cry dear friend and I want you to know that you are not alone. There are people out there (I am one) who know what you are going through and care for you.
Oh and the poem is lovely in spite of the pain I read in the words. There is a glimmer of hope to be seen.
Take care

Another fantastic write. I like these lines...
(Life is my gift and must go on
Yet is not mine to take nor give
It is commanded that I live
Until the course of days is run
Which has been given unto me)

Thanks for sharing this magnificent write.
