Love’s Comfort

Love's Comfort is a poem about love by Ruth Desjardins

Above the raging thunder

Throughout the tearful rain,

While angry storm clouds threaten,

I hear your voice again.


And suddenly I’m smiling

My strength returns and then

The warmth of sunlight flickers;

You’re here – the thunder ends.


Before your gentle presence,

Within your tenderness,

I tell you of my shadows:

You fill the emptiness.


My fear of storms is banished;

The sky seems bright above;

And once again I’m strong and free

To feel the joy of love


In the magic of love’s comfort

I only seek your love;

You make my world beautiful;

You are my joy, my love.
