Until--By Erich J. Goller--United States


Until there is a brighter tomorrow
Let love and joy shine from your heart
There might be a time of pain and sorrow
If you have kept faith it shall be a new start,

When asking some questions, state your case
And with unfolding daily possibilities
The door is always wide open to that place
Showing some of the wondering mysteries.

With heavenly peace and His embrace
When the world is fair and cares are few
He rewards everyone with loving grace
His blessings are always bountiful and new.

To do the many things in life one has planned
Even when feeling confident and secure
At times everyone could use a helping hand
It shall give you the extra strength to endure.

No one has to take that lonely stand
Kindness and compassion give life a lift
When you reach out and take His Hand
It is a very blessed and wonderful gift.

  1. How true, Erich. People who face adversity with courage and faith, like those whose stories were told in "The Greatest Generation," seem to know how important it is to reach out to others and give them the strength they need to move past challenges. God is always at our side, ready to provide love and encouragement. Beautifully written! Best wishes for the holiday season, Carolyn Devonshire
