No tear-drop in my eye

On this path of life

Towards this chamber

Serest passage of loneliness

Cold and hollow

As light wrestles dark

No sadness in my heart

Flakes of silence

Hold my spirit

In the empty space

Feel the rhythm

Pulse within my veins

Your love

Your power

Your presence

Your grace

    Alan, I like the progression of your poem and that in the end there is no sadness. And yes, His grace and power is everywhere. Thank you, Alan, for this.

    I like the trust I can read in your words, even in ‘passage of loneliness’ and silence. You remind us that, even during those harder times, we are not really alone.

    It is always God who will be there in the end when everyone else has fled the scene.!

    I got the feeling this was spiritual. At least I thought so and so there’s so much comfort in that.
