As an aspiring writer, I've recently put more work toward a short story, maybe a series of short stories or even larger projects in the future... And so, quite frankly, I didn't have the time to create any short post of value. So I'll share a poem that I recently read and enjoyed... Completely unrelated to my current outlook on life, but powerful and eloquent nonetheless.
There’s little joy in life for me,
And little terror in the grave;
I’ve lived the parting hour to see
Of one I would have died to save.
Calmly to watch the failing breath,
Wishing each sigh might be the last;
Longing to see the shade of death
O’er those belovèd features cast.
The cloud, the stillness that must part
The darling of my life from me;
And then to thank God from my heart,
To thank Him well and fervently;
Although I knew that we had lost
The hope and glory of our life;
And now, benighted, tempest-tossed,
Must bear alone the weary strife.
