Comfort

The sky with its colours of light and dark
As shadows on the road of silver rain
A step ahead to my destination.

Faith is the comfort planted in my soul
The breath of sweet air and the flame that burns
inside and provided in that moment.

Melted the stubborn fear that locks my heart
Eternal words ignite the certain hope
And through the long wilderness towards rest.

Grant to me the everlasting healing
The breath of love poured out in crimson wine
That all is well and I am kept, forever.

    Isn't it such a relief when you can step away from that "stubborn fear"? Enjoyed the whole poem, but these lines especially.
