theres a sadness in the backdrop to the stars, tonight;

a wetness in the paint – something less finished than i’d like.

the stars, at least, are still stars –

oiled light for midnight, and they burn

and almost seem to blur in a hope- –

God if i could have the strength to cope and know

  that tomorrow will come, anyhow.  ~

  1. Beautiful poem. Sometimes it does just feel like too much. When I find myself there I remind myself of a favorite quote – I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish that He didn’t trust me so much. ~Mother Teresa

  2. I could not have asked for a more perfect response. Thank you.
