Darkest Hour

Darkest Hour short poem

Photo by NiKo Notibär

I sit in the dark and wait for the day.
The darkest hour of my life,
I do not know when it will pass away.

A fear lurking inside, my faith seems to have lost its way.
I peep back to my past,
Time has killed it, it no more lasts.

My guardian angel, my hero,
He carried me on his shoulders when I was a zero.

The strength seems to fade now,
my soldier lies in pain.
I stretch my hand in the hollow & call out – All in vain.

Hope, Do not go away.
There you are flickering by the end of the bay.

Come now as I cling by a thread,
Show me a miracle unsaid.

I sit in the dark and wait for the day.
The darkest hour of my life,
I do not know when it will pass away.

Love’s Brief Hour

Loves Brief Hour short poem

In love’s brief hour, A new joy is born, quite uncommon, Spelling rhythms of stepping affair coming up. Half drawn eyes glowing, full of fineries, Giving gentle knocks in hesitating heart. It is the glorious hour, being in passion fever,
