This poem was written at a time when my strength and faith were needed the most.  My family and I were waiting for news of my son, Matthew, who at that time was missing.

As my mind was screaming, my heart was hoping.


Like a mountain standing strong 

Love and faith can do no wrong 

What once was, now is gone 

As life begins, a different song 

Stripping bare, to see what’s there 

The naked truth behind the glare 

Revealing what is in us all 

A need to rise and then to fall 

In the stillness from the sounds 

A peace untold is what is found 

Where strings on hearts become unbound 

And love forever, does surround
