Glimmers of Light--By Sandra Stefanowich--Canada

Glimmers of Light

Outside the streets burst into fire
the smoke took my breath away
fences had become barbed wire
forgiveness; someone had to pay

as good souls perished in the heat
roads buckled, breaking in sadness
heartbreak trailed beneath my feet
hatred gripped the world in madness

then a glimmer of light from above
I turned and saw the face of hope
a child reached out in tears of love
trying to find his own way to cope

through my falling tears I prayed
that there has to be a better way
can't we mend our hearts so frayed
to find love again in the light of day

there will be a better day this I know
until then I'll keep reaching out in love
show me the path of peace to follow
glimmers of light I see high up above

  1. You write of dark days, and with a sense of urgency. This is no easy subject to tackle, but in your more that capable hands, a glimmer shines.
