There Was a Moment....

For Writer's Island Prompt #10 for 2011: Secret

There was a moment in my life
When the secret was told
And I was taken
From all that I knew.

Falling into a pit of loneliness,
Visions of terror spinning round my mind
Panic tapping at the door of sanity
I was lost.

In that moment I found sanctuary
In your care.
You believed
And in your believing
I began to heal.

Quiet moments; quiet voices
Gentle comfort slowly changed
Nights of despair
Into hope for bright tomorrows.

Perhaps in time my silenced spirit
Would emerge and sing once more
Because you gave me refuge in trust.
Did I ever thank you?


  1. An amazing tribute, Gloria, to someone who must have been heaven sent. Really compeling read, here. Nicely crafted.

  2. How lovely to have someone to believe in us. So glad there was someone there at that moment... Thanks for sharing your heart. ~Paula
