Do You Need a Lift?

Hi, everyone! Hope your day is going well. I have a previously unpublished poem for you today:

To be alive–
that is the joy

To be aware–
that is the hope

To find the inner core of strength–
that is the blessing

To look at Death and have no fear–
that is the freedom

To search
the Darkness to find Light–
that is the journey

To know
that Light cannot be extinguished–
that, my friends, that is the gift

 Can you help me with a title, please?

Lois, I love the choice of words you used. Suggested title: “The Gift”. Thanks for sharing this unpublished gem with your readers. xx

Thanks, Jan. Several others suggested “The Gift” also. Sounds like a winner.

“This little light of mine/I’m going to let it shine.” I loved the poem.

Thank you, Taylor. Hope your week is going well.

. When I finished reading this poem, Lois, I just thought of “clarity.”

What a nice compliment! Thanks, Yvonne.
