another letting go reminder

The load
that lay
like lead
lifted;
instead:
peace.

The dread
that hung
fog-thick, gray,
faded away;
and with release,
day.

The trial
the same...
unsolved,
but this:
now
it is
His.

I LOVE her poetry!! I found a book I forgot I had by her when I was unpacking. It's a book of her love poems she wrote to Billy and about being a wife and mother. So of course, I quit unpacking for about an hour and just sat in the floor and read the whole book again--LOL! They're SO SO good!! :-) This one is a great reminder!

Well, it's a mighty good thing I didn't run across that book on your bookshelves while I was there as the book may have accidentally traveled home with me *grin*

I had not read any of her poetry before. Thank you for sharing this.
