“At Prayers End”


In collaboration with my darling Editor "Micky"


Again we struggle toward the light

Nightly hues of nostalgic blues

Fingers out-stretched crossed velvet skies

Darkest places touched deep inside

How empty in time this space you leave

Eyes insentient search for heavenly clues

Engulfed dark thoughts my soul besieged


Pleading prayers like whispering winds

Escape my suffering heart revealed

Each word released screams out dismay

Another child, innocent dies today

Dare I breathe fear's air such into my heart

Pleading I beg you tell me why

Nostalgic dreams my warmth at night


Procrastination prolongs my pain

Relentless search for rekindled hope

Another prayer released to your domain

Your love to instill instaurations embrace

A heart enrich with laughter's joy

Reimbursed years of endless pain

Not merely strength by which to cope

A song says, "When you can't trace His hand, trust His heart."
I see you trusting Him, even as you cry out in pain.
Deep yearning sentiments that you have intricately expressed.

God bless and keep you close.

'How empty in time this space you leave' is one of the most notable lines you have ever written, Tinka, and through the refining fire of suffering and pain, and not knowing why..yet, retaining your faith, it will make you even stronger than you already are. And you are already, dear lady, incredibly strong.

Tinks ...

You are writing deeper than I've ever read you. Such deep rivers of emotion and pain you are dealing with.

You will survive you know sissy, you don't have a choice. And then someday all this pain and suffering will come into a clearer light.

Stand Strong dear friend ...
