After reading this poem, I went directly to Jean Pike's den site to reread her poem "When It Rains," and recaptured these lines:
"Under gathering clouds I walk
In the shadows of the moonlight
With hope my only stronghold
And faith my only plan."
Of any person I have ever met, Pamela, you exemplify what suffering and hope and faith are all about. This poem, "Smiling Thru The Tears," is a reminder of how far you have come when I now read your poem in July, 2007, "In The Silence of the Moment."
You are, indeed, an unforgettable inspiration for us all.
With great respect and admiration,
