Reflections: a poem from the poetry book "Images of Life" by E.T. Milligan

I was inspired to write this poem by my appreciation of the power within our soul as we recognize the forces that surround us which the words inspired me to reflect on the power we have within us.


Reflections


under pitfalls of my misery,

move careful child, with eyes that guide

to glimmers of incandescent light,

sparkling through the midst of dark

appearing brightly within sight


distant light brings rays of hope

oh, but a shadow of a life once was,

endeavoring towards a morning shower,

a calm sleeps comes over me,

unbounded by the darkest hour


gentle was the night that calmed

for nothing sleeps through winter’s storm

as sure as did my faith adorn,

a shelter from torrential rain

that comforts those that ‘ever mourn


i shadow-box the thoughts within

pushed well beneath undaunted force,

that guides me down an endless path

forever bonds, by only faith

that keeps well hidden from the wrath


unstated, thoughts shall never be

as voice chant within my soul

oh, thank thee God for thy warm embrace

as nature changes like the tide,

and surrounds my heart with warmth and grace
