A Case of Hearts ~ For Khole

I’ve been very busy moving and getting settled for the last couple of months, and so I haven’t written much of anything, and as a result haven’t posted anything on my favorite poetry and/or writing sites. One of my favorite sites is Kellie Elmore’s, Magic in the Backyard; especially her Free Write Friday feature. I’m hoping this poem can help bring some peace, courage, and hope to Kellie and her family. (Click on the link below to see the excerpt from Kellie’s site for details about the challenge her family is facing.)

A Case of Hearts ~ For Khole


When the world comes crashing down

And life is full of fear and doubt

Can a penny on the sidewalk

Mean things will all work out


When things go from bad to worse

We must fight on and keep our faith strong

Believing all will turn out right

Even when things seem so wrong


For darkness can’t hide the light

Of God’s love and His great plan

And when all is said and done

It’s in God’s hands, not man’s


So, when dark hours are upon you

Just remember the dawn always starts

And with God’s angels as our jury

We will always win in A Case of Hearts

#FWF Free Write Friday: Special Edition #TeamKhole


The poem above was originally written to promote Kathryn Daugherty’s new novel, A Case of Hearts. When I saw Kellie’s prompt, I thought I could change it slightly and turn it into a poem for Khole. Look for the original on dVerse Poets Pub, this coming Tuesday, October 15, 2013.


You can check out Kathryn’s wonderful first novel at Amazon, or her website.


If you like romance (this one isn’t gushy like some of them) read Kathryn’s great little book!

    Thank you.
