A lingering mist

as mist poem image

‘Lingering’

Even the happy things

hold a sadness, lingering

with importunity

like a fading kiss

Still hovering

on the premises

as wraith, as mist

Seeking to steal

kill and destroy our

joy and happiness

It’s darkening cloud

cloaking like a fine grey

shroud over every missed

opportunity and day

when hope takes wings

and flies clear away

  1. Oh Joy, this really speaks my heart. It brings tears to my eyes to read how much you understand my heart. “Even the happy things hold a sadness…” Praying for God to breathe joy into our hearts and lives! Hugs!

    • Dear Trudy, we truly are soul sisters in Christ! I often feel the same way when I read your posts. It’s a wonderful God-given thing to understand one another so well. Amen to “Praying for God to breathe joy into our hearts and lives!” *Hugs* ūüôā x
