Sharing what I read from that person before reminded me of a poem I had written myself awhile ago, about someone I knew who was going through a rough patch… While I was at it, I thought I should share it too! Hope it blesses someone out there!
There she stands as time stood still
Her life pouring out before her as it all went downhill
Deserted and left out in the cold
As the voices of her friends grew faint and old…
She wept in silence, thinking no one would hear her
Trying her best to cope and get it all back together
But even as she drenched it all with her tears
There was nothing that could quench her fears…
But she was wrong.
She didn’t know that all along
There was a hand guiding her, keeping her strong
A voice whispering a silent song
Praying that her nights be peaceful and her days be long
Little did she know
That she was the star of the show
That her God’s been watching
As her face paled like snow
She couldn’t see just how blessed she would be
When she entered the grandeur of that step in her journey
She didn’t know that at the end of this road
That seemed so lonely and forgotten
Was a place that she could rest:
Home; as her eyes were locked in
They were swollen dried up and red
Like those of the Savior as he hung and bled
She thought there was no one akin to her sorrow
but in His hands was her tomorrow.
That even though she couldn’t fathom it now,
There will be joy where it was once hollow.
