Richard Schnap- A Poem


Faith is the lingering shadow
Fading as the sun climbs
The ladder of the sky

Faith is the child laughing
As she gathers flowers
In the midst of a rain storm

Faith is the lost cat
Found by a stranger
That asks for no reward

Faith is the bright candle
That illuminates the darkness
When all other lights go out

Faith is the tree whose limbs
Are cut down without mercy
That simply sprouts new ones

And faith is the man who wakes
From a twenty year sleep
Leaving all his nightmares behind
