Poem: Dark Days

My days and nights
Are dark of late.
Full of pain
And despair .
Anticipating grief
Mourning loves ones
Far too often.
Struggling to live
In a house
That is definitely not
A home for me.
Feeling so alone
Wanting to love
Struggling to hold
To hope until it come.s
Bearing the pressure
Of leadership
Of work
And wondering
How much longer
Until something gives.
Easy to focus
On all this darkness
To give up
To give in.
Yet I know
How to live
In the dark.
I know
The Spirit is with me
In this suffering.
I trust
That a new dawn
Will come
In its proper
Time and season.
This new dawn.
