Guiding Light

Woe was the bleakness in my darkest time
Heart leaden grey in gravity of mourn;
The light in your soul a haven of love
T’was your grace, for I found none from above.

Thou sowed my soul in the garden of hope

Whilst balancing our lives in tenderness,
Lavenders bouquet scents warm summer air
Reminding always of true love thou share.

  1. A true Romantic poem - strange how love is often about the process of loss..

    So pretty! But I find lavender to be a little stinky without other scents added to the potpourri bowl; don't you?
