 Pages Of A Woman's Soul


This work is dedicated to Jehovah God and all of the angels, heavenly and earthly (family and friends),
who have lifted me up when life's road has made me stumble...my loving gratitude to you all!

Flying on wings of remembrance
my battered soul grows weary
visiting the spaces left, where
dreams go dark and bleary

So many hurts and so much pain
have haunted sleepless nights
Love's slipped away repeatedly;
my heart's now locked up tight

Disappointment carves a path
along my life's lone road
tripping, where I used to dance
shy steps, where once bestrode

But angels lift this crumpled girl
gentle arms enfolding me
without a word my silent tears
are banished so lovingly

Deep within my troubled mind
a small, insistent voice
drowns words of harsh maleficence
"You'll always have a choice!"

"Lift up your head and carry on
your burdens will grow lighter;
with heaven's help and beatitude
your future's getting brighter."

With trembling limbs beneath me
grasping my champion's hand;
turning towards the mirror's face
I'm struck dumb where I stand

No ministerial spirit,
no seraphim's presence there
only my own familiar smile
looks back, so bright and fair

Today the world looks kinder
there's peace and joy newfound;
trusting in God, myself, and life
my gratitude knows no bounds!
