Yesterday I went looking for a poem
within the varied landscape of my soul.
While wandering around in its confusion
I found, instead, an empty tomb —
felt drawn to walk inside.
So stark were my surroundings!
Shadows draped everything in sadness.
And I began to weep so bleak I felt
within myself — within that tomb.
But then I saw a light.
At first I was afraid
and tightly closed my eyes.
But when I opened them
before me was an angel.
I felt compelled to ask her name
and she responded COMFORT.
