Reposted due to font color not legible on my blog’s background –
Each day a new day
the refreshment of new things
don’t always come to pass
some days the doldrums
of the sorrows of silence
take hold once again
as I long for the Presence
to speak the promises I await
but waiting to hear seems
to be my only fate
nature’s seasons are but months
but the soul’s seasons can be years
filled with so many tears
holding on can become a weary task
it is then I must drink from Hope’s flask
to continue on to my future’s promised destiny.
