Sometimes, in the midst of life's ups and downs, it helps to have the reassurance that someone out there still cares. If you are experiencing this now, I hope my poem brings you some comfort.
When the dust storm settles and the sun has set
I promise you one thing; on this you can bet
I will be here waiting; my arms opened wide
I want nothing more than to be by your side
You will rise beyond this with a stronger heart
Since your inner beauty sets your soul apart
Despite all the sadness that you may now feel
Please know you’re still needed since your gift is real.
You have stood beside me when I have been blue
And now is my chance to send some joy to you
Look back and remember these days with a smile
Then, gaze toward the future; embrace every mile
You have conquered mountains; you’ve danced with the tide
And through every hardship, you have stormed in stride
It is in your nature to always be strong
Even when it seems nothing could be more wrong.
When the dust storm settles, some things will be known
The sky will be clear and you’ll fly on your own
The key to the future is now in your reach
And that is something no one on earth can breach
Soon, you’ll find your way to where you’re meant to go
Your heart will be healed and your sweet smile will glow
While here in this moment, life seems much to bear
But, know that I need you and will always care.

|your beauty is above beauty. Love your new bio pic too.
When I read your poetry, I feel I'm in a different era.
A time when christians were all Christ followers, and a lass like you
was the desire of all good men, who saw the heart and soul, not just the outter beauty...
Divine as ever...
