One of the poems from my book, Pulse Points of a Woman's World. A poem I kept hanging over my computer the entire time I battled with bladder cancer and dealt with the loss of my husband.


Let me love
          though love
                   may go unrequited,
An empty heart
          is much heavier
                   than a stone.
Let me have faith,
          though faith
                   be often blighted,
Without it
          we are not
                   strong enough
                             to walk alone.
Let me laugh,
          even if it
                   is bitter laughter
Mocking my own
          carefully kept
                   secret sorrow..
                   and laughter…
          with these
                   three gifts,
I need not fear
          tomorrow, nor, tomorrow.

Wonderful writing, Sylvia. I can readily understand how re-reading it would help in your daily trials. I don't often admit it, but I gain much comfort at times by reading some of my own writing. I thank God for it, knowing it is given by Him.
