Trepidation is the sharp blade that shreds my happiness.

Desperation is the flame that burns the small shreds into tiny embers and ashes.

Discouragement is the wind that blows away the chaff of my elation.

Joy is the sunshine that erases the dark clouds of gloom.

Love is the white clouds that replace the ones that drained from the sky.

Laughter is the rainbow that shines brighter than the rain's sparkle during a storm.

A smile is the medicine that cures a broken heart.

A simple petal is a reminder of the beauty in small things.

A small stitch is a bind that holds a life together.

Life is a fading flower that's time ends with the season.
