James Michael Cecil, USA
On Early DivorceIn solitude, I search for willTo mend my soul, and shed the chillOf broken love, the loss, and fearsI taste this day- with salty tears.Memories - are but a foeThat drags my fractured spirit slowMy children’s voices cast no balmI search for hope, through prayer or psalm.For only light of each day newWith all its promise, fresh and trueCan lead me to that precious sparkThat draws in hope, and lights the dark.My friend is time; its patient willEach passing day make dull the nilThat left me empty - duped of trustA sunlit day precedes the dusk.The dusk is tired; a weary yawn.My slumber calms until the dawnI wake enslaved in pain’s full scopeThis new day born- I ache for hope.
