When life seems a dredge
and it stumbles on down
we wear a smile
sometimes a frown
People get broken hearts
it is life at it's best
tears flow endlessly
and are sent to us to test.

The storms gather wildly
it enters our heart and soul
it knows how to grip us
and forget our own goal
We need to let the past go
however hard it seems
torment must evade us
and become history in dreams.
I know the winds will settle
calm will enter your life
engulf you in its power
settle all your strife.
Around you is the love
you certainly deserve
your family are with you
your heart they will preserve.

I wrote this poem for a friend who was having a bad time with a relationship, viola you will know who this was written for, sometimes a friend being there can make all the difference, even when you are hurting :)

Do you give friendly advice? and do people get comfort from it?

  10. Your poem is beautiful Billy. I find we grow stronger during our bad times, and God always carry us through our hurts, sorrows, and disapointments. Not only is God with us through our storms He places people in our lives to love us and help us. I can never praise Him, love Him, or thank Him enough for bringing you into my life. You have truly been a blessing to me and my family, just like you were for our friend who you wrote this poem for. You are not only mine but many people's angel.
