A chapter in the book Once upon the heart..

True Spirit's Might

by Susanjohn

Once, where lonely thoughts prevailed,
dense shrouds covered inner lights.
Aching taunts, despair lay veiled,
'neath chained hopes and fretful nights.

Each pursuing due set course,
till fate shattered false belief.
True spirit's might -- bridging force,
uncloaked hardened layers' grief.

Gently, fervent tender words
soon unleashed once captive heart.
Morrow's dream holds fast, begirds;
love embossed begs, ''Never part!''

One soul found me worth his love,
Now, unbound wings soar above.
