Anniversary eve- and more poetry.

As I sat trying to plan my tribute for tomorrow, words would not come, but instead the following poem awaited me.

My Guiding Light

Who gave me faith?

My guiding light

Who showed me truth?

My guiding light.

What is faith?

That tomorrow will come.

What is truth?

That it shall be better than today.

Where is hope?

It resides with faith

In my changing heart

With memories of my guiding light.

What is my hope?

Somewhere, somehow, far from now

My guide and I will meet again

And then at last, I will be free

From love that’s shown through pain.

My guiding light,

My love I send,

To wish you perfect peace

I’d lie if I said I didn’t miss you

But I give thanks for your release.
