Conflicted

I sit on the edge of your bed
and watch you leak
small drops
of life.

I anticipated doing things for you,
rather than this --
this waiting, hovering,
trying to interpret
what your heart mumbles
between slurred words.

Like a beachcomber, I search
for tiny wave tossed treasures,
then leave for home - empty handed -
and pray for the tide to turn.

God is Not Against You - He Came on an All Out Rescue Mission to Save You


...in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them... 2 Cor 5:19

Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. Acts 13:38

This one really moves me for personal reasons. Been there, seen that, can't seem to forget it. Great emotion, wordsmithing, smooth. Did I say I liked it? Be blessed.

This is beautiful and heartbreaking for the reader as you wonder what the situation might be. Is this someone dying and who is this person beside their bed. I love that the interpretation is left up to the reader.
