Sonnet of Faith
Appareled in a veil of grace,
angst and despair showed its face.
Yet from your eyes a gleam did shine,
a hint of nature’s grand design.
To teach us all that we must cope,
and never lose our faith and hope.
That all things bad and all things sad
will be eclipsed by what makes us glad:
love and trust in one another.
Wholesome values as father, mother.
Embracing our children sweet and fair,
holding their hands, combing their hair.
These are the flames that within us burn,
the passions strong for which we yearn.
So while today your loss brings drear,
the morrow’s sunshine will again appear.
