For a moment all was lost
The heart who’d loved had all but tossed
Intention out into the void.
It’s murmurs lost within the noise
Of such chaotic atmosphere
The voice of hope no longer cheered
But rather offered what had passed
In mournful reflection relapse
Nostalgia had become the way;
Forgetting Providence’s reign.
And in that moment what had past
Became regrets that will yet last
For years and years and years to come
The fight now over- overcome.
Empathy and love undone
Engaged in turmoiled war of love
Stricken with dark pleasures bite
Embittered by all towards the light
Chasing down emotions fraught
With fruitless ends in treasures bought
Paying the price: integrity
Sacrificing self to please
The heart who had all but lost hope
Reaching out for ways to cope.
For, for a moment all was lost
The heart had given up the cost.
Until the light of truth shone through
The path of mercy ever proved
And in that glimmer came the thought
That all that’s past produces what
Will follow after; follow fast
After all that has long past.
All is not lost; all’s not gone
Life continues; not undone.
Pressing in but still endured,
Never breaking; ever sure.
Life eternal sheds it’s light
Strife temporal has no life
Beyond the grave; beyond the void
Beyond the face of endless noise.
Setting is the sun of shame
Rising is the morn of grace.
