It had been a long, hard winter,
Storms assailed me from all sides.
Loss of my sister,
Tore my heart out-
Days on end for me to bide.

Staring out the sunroom windows,
All of nature seemed at rest.
I could only stare,
Remembering,
Times together, being blessed.

Through the weeks and months I sat there,
Feeling comfort from above
An open Bible
There before me
Speaking of my Fatherís love.

Passing slowly, days of winter
Giving way to warming sun.
Another season and
Hope renewing
Resurrection has begun.

See the flowers, smell their fragrance
Listen to the birds that sing.
Chirping sweet praises
To their Maker
Praising God for it is spring.

My Child, life was only sleeping
Growing strong in winterís blast.
Then bursting forth in
All its glory
Renewed living, darkness past.










Once again youíll see that loved one
On that day we all will meet.
Those whoíve passed and
Gone before you
Resurrected, made complete.

Then youíll roam the hills of heaven
Hand in hand and singing praise.
Telling the stories
Of My mercy
And the goodness of My ways.

Lovely poem. I liked the way your winter of despair turned into renewed hope:)

He turns all things to good as you did with the saddness of the poem in the beginning. Nicely done!

thank you. was the gap before the last two verses deliberate? I almost missed reading them on the computer screen. I enjoyed this poem

Your poem touched a tender spot...I have lost a sister too. Like how you ended your poem with the promise of completeness.
