As ships passing in the night...

LIFE...

As ships passing in the night, we go about our daily fight!

Desperate to find what's right, & then to keep it within sight...

~

Daily then we trim our sails, tack & coast along like snails;

Knowing somehow through our trails, we will bump 'gainst many rails!

~

Find that special someone dear, try so hard to hold them near!

Clinging tight to fight our fear, we sometimes push them out of here...

~

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, won't you help me out at all?

Bring me hope, or song to call; Help my image when I fall!!

~

Is this life a challenge hollow? Isn't there someone to follow?

Do I really have to wallow? Must I poison have to swallow?

~

First I think that all is lost... Messed up life, so high a cost!

Without hope, forgotten, mossed... ?As a tree in Limberlost...

~

Then from deep within my soul, comes a feeling of control...

"Christ has come & paid a toll..." This a message I'll extoll!

~

Silently the message, still, & small... A voice just whispers to me all!

On my Savior, I can call!! He has saved me from the fall!!

I think this is by far, your best poem from my standpoint, if I'm allowed to say so of course. You have a very gifted mind as well.

Love and Hugs,
Kemy
