About the Poem
When life becomes overwhelming, as it sometimes does, one true friend can make all of the difference - with no more than simply being there, no more than reaching out a hand in the darkness.
A Hand In The Darkness
|A hand reaches out through the despair
No questions asked - No judgments made
From the depths, her light clears the darkness
Her soft smile brings with it a warmth
A gentle, knowing look - and hope rises.
No words need be spoken
An unconditional love is seen
Her compassion - brings me strength
And have lightened the once heavy burdens.
I emerge from the darkness whole
and with the knowledge--
That one true friend will be at my side
As we travel the hills and valleys
And continue our walk down the path of life.
