    Hello Olwin

    You are turning into a one woman publishing machine - what's that, two in a week? lol
    Jesting aside, it's lovely to see you posting your positive poetry. This is a calming and warming piece that brought a smile to my face.

    In all honesty, I have struggled throughout my life with the concept of faith, but I have spent a lot of time envying those who have it and hold it so dear as you obviously do. To walk through all of life's lows (and there are often many) but be absolutely sure within yourself that - however bumpy the road, it leads to heaven, is a true blessing and must be the upmost comfort.

    I love the long lines you've employed here; it gives the poem a musical and lulling quality that only heightens your rhyming.

    Take care and all the very best,

    Olwin, I love the spiritual feel in this that when things go wrong they won't be for long as gods always near. I am a non believer but like Ben I admire people of all faiths that believe their faith amongst other things will pull them closer to god. This world should have more of those people that think that instead of causing wars due to their religion.

    The piece has a serene feel to it and the flow and rhyming are perfect.
