I included this poem at the beginning of my new book:
Laughing AT the Grim Reaper!
Thought it was a good time to share it here again at My Poetic Path too.
I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
PS: Does anyone know why WP removes line spacing when you reblog a post? This has happened to me more than once.
There are spaces in this poem for each stanza but when I reblogged it, they disappeared.
I couldn’t figure out how to add them back in, so they would stay in place.
Another WP quirk I guess. 😦
Far from the struggles and strains of life.
Find that place and seal it in your heart.
To pause, retreat to.
Where grace always dwells.
Put back the smile.
Now: softly, silently returned.
A beacon in the dark.
Safe and sublime.
May your tomorrows.
Outlive life’s storms.
