A wondrous life

I dance under a beautiful sky
While a lover’s arms hold love fast,
A young mother tearfully lulls a baby’s cry
And a lifeless body reduced to dust.

When the stars fall on your beautiful face
In faith a stained -life is seeking hope,
A gracious heart extends an embrace
As slippery feet conquer  the slope.

Brother, hold on to my hand as we champion this strife.
Sister, come share with me this wondrous life.

Love: Candy Morrow

  1. This is amazing, your writing's only getting better but protect your work as we talked about.. my favourite lines:

    "A young mother tearfully lulls a baby’s cry
    And a lifeless body reduced to dust."

    "When the stars fall on your beautiful face
    In faith a stained -life is seeking hope"
