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
