As ships passing in the night...


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,
