As I was listening to this beautiful song this morning, the inspiration and the words came to me for this poem I have written below. Hope you enjoy.
Peering up from where I am
I stare into a night sky
So many questions I have inside
So many questions for the reasons why.
Why in my darkest hour
and in my greatest time of need
does my hope and courage fail me
does faith not my heart lead?
Why should so many souls be suffering
with such beauty all around?
Why do the warmest of hearts grow cold,
why can no compassion be found?
Why loneliness, sadness and tribulation
are the greatest teachers of all,
why in order to truly learn
the lessons must be hard.
Why the young grow old and turn to dust
life given to us and taken away
Why the dream of eternal youth
flees farther and farther each day.
Why true love’s kiss upon our brow
turns it’s back on us in disdain
Why promises are broken, what was now no more,
Our souls torn apart in torment and pain?
Oh give me just one reason why
and give me a glimmer of truth
whisper a lifetime of love in my ear
restoring what was mine in youth.
The days and the hours keep passing by
ebbing, flowing with the tide
but I will not from you drop my eyes
will not from you my fears hide.
I choose to be a reason for hope
be all my eyes behold in the skies
I choose to be an answer of love
to a world hurting and wondering why.

Let all the answers to even our hardest questions be love, leaving no room for anything else to remain. ~ Celeste ~
