Lest We Forget

leaves shedding, it's unstoppable
but let not our hopes shed
leaving our souls empty

  3. Maybe at the Fall of our life we feel tempted to let our hopes disappear into the darkness of oblivion.

    This is when your sad but creative thoughts come in as the stars of redemption.

    Your skill is awesome, BB!!

    1. May be it would be better to forget that darkness for awhile even though at one stage or another we couldn't avoid it.

      Much thanks for your kind words, Od. You never fail to make me feel good about my work no matter how simple it is. It's always a pleasure for me reading your comments. :))

  4. Salaam Balqis. Been such a long since I came here...:)

    Lovely and meaningful lines. Once I used to think "had it been so easy to take the trails as light as the shedding of leaves, life would have been a Paradise". Life taught me it's possible, all we need is hope and trust on the Almighty!
