If poetry be a reflection of the soul.and love be the magic in our words.then faith endears us to remember those things we cherish most of all. This book of poetry is of love and faith.and memories to cherish forever. Written over the years, these thoughts and dreams remain as vivid as the day they were written; some marked with the joy of love's great emancipation, others with the fear of love so fleeting. So it is with life and love, touched with hopes, dreams and sorrow. Forever uplifting all the same. Prayers of hope, faith and remembrance chronicle these years of growing maturity, from simple childhood, through the coming of age, to the final acceptance of the eternal cycle of life, death and the sure and certain faith in final hereafter. The real soul of life.
