Sonnet to a Dear and Discouraged Friend


Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?

There’s nobody who knows as well as I

How stealthily dark thoughts will bruit and shove

The rational, the calmer ones; they lie

And whisper: “You’re not worthy of their love!”


And oh my dear, I know that this is true,

So venomous to both of us. You’re THE

Good Person, Lovely One. I’ve faith in you;

And if it’s in my pow’r, I’ll help you see


How thoroughly you’re loved. So many say

They love you (as do I). If you but knew,

Persuaded of your worth, the unique way

You’ve made all our lives better, I think you


Might realize what we all know: You are

As bright and lovely as the Evening Star.
