Today

Poem By rita francis

Today has brought with it
the promise that the hurt
will fade, the dreams will
subside, and the heartache
will be healed.

Today came with a lantern of
hope that yesterday is
over; no longer a failure; no
longer a knuse choking
the life out of me.

Today came with the essence
of joy. Not for what has passed,
but what can happened
when one believes that
good things can happen again.

Today is all I have to
find peace within my soul
for yesterday's mistakes and
shallowness that gave scare.

Today is the day's gratitude of
things which can be
to find solemnity in the simple and
not the convoluted.

Today I will be free
at last and rejoice for I
know that light within, around, and bestowed
upon those that have faith in
the best for this moment.

Simple Expressions

There are moments and places been
where simple expressions cannot erase
those tender lapses in life's tale
where one can rarely regale.

Voices

There I looked out and you saw me
a waif in search of a home
you gathered me up in your arms
and carried me to safety

I Dream

I dream of you
yet I know that you are gone
that your spirit is no
longer mine to behold

You Came

and found me in the midst of despair.

You came

Somewhere, Someplace, Planet Earth

From the red mountains, blue skies, and benthic valley's below
I searched for what to plan, nurture, and sow
