Shadows

His Light Overcomes Our Darkness

Copyright ©09/14/2016 Elizabeth Ellis

Shadows dance and swirl – never ceasing thoughts
A mourning of a life once lived well
Now languishing; the exuberance of living gone
Replaced by illness and physical pain that never goes away
Everything is meaningless; life’s purpose  has retreated
Only the desire for the end stands silently waiting
No more tears to weep; only the depth of anguish
As the mind searches for answers through the despair
The heart knows acceptance is the only way through
A tiny ray of light shining through the shadows
Persevering with faith and the hope
He is there in the darkness to turn the light on
In His time
