Sheila Kline
Life's Cup

Midnight shadows cover o'er my soul,
Yet hide me not from trials’ toll.
Tears stinging now my weary eyes
Blur reasons for truth’s disguise.

I embrace now words of scholars astute--
Thoughts and plans not to refute;
Predicted trials would fill life's cup,
Vile gall weary soul might long sup.

Understood I tempest of sorrows,
Would render me hope for 'morrows.
Longest of roads might meet dead end,
Finding for me a treasured friend.

Review now I moments of days passed
Knowing times ticked by far too fast
I place now tears in furrowed hand
Ever drudging towards Glory Land.

Well Sheila you know me I don't worry bout meters, i am more into the words and the feelings expressed and I must say again you show such great faith in the face of adversity... your words ring of true inspiration... and the ending really was divine... knowing that all your pain is washed away by God's grace.

Very beautiful, peacful, and a write that needs to be read by a lot of folks. I really like your opening stanza. It really sets the stage. I don't think anything about this needs changed.

Your thoughts and feelings flow like gentle rain, taking us across the path of the past, the stance of the day, and the hope for the future... So beautifully done, and filled with a courage to move on no matter what we face.. Thank you... I needed that!

Yes, life's reflections do reveal one thing, if nothing else. The power of time and it's short lived presence. No matter how long it lasts. A wonderful piece with an equally wonderful choice of photo to match. Outstanding, Sheila!
