Surrounded--By Sandra Stefanowich--Canada


My friend, close your eyes
let those wings take flight
dance freely among fireflies
put a flame to fear tonight

for when helpless hands
can't seem to move in time
dear, hear me in the winds
of a beating heart's chime

what a universe will bestow
in your faith held so strong
is hope in a calm river aglow
and a night's whisper in song

  1. Dear Sandra,
    What a beautiful poem that greets me this morning. I love the superb rhyme scheme that is not forced. But, I love most of all your poetic message of love's endearing constancy and "a night's whisper in song."
    In gratitude . . .
