a poem i found dear to my heart.

Dark Shadows Fall in the Lives of Us All

Sickness and sorrow comes to us all,
But through it we grow and learn to 'stand tall'-
for trouble is 'part and parcel of life'
And no man can grow without struggle and strife,
And the more we endure with patience and grace
The stronger we grow and the more we can face-
And the more we can face, the greater our love,
And with love in our hearts we are more conscious of
The pain and the sorrow in lives everywhere,
So it is through trouble that we learn how to share.

written by Helen Steiner Rice, Thankfully.
