Faithful Companion

Itís been my constant companion
Though not always at my side
But a loyal and devoted friend
It appears in my most desolate times

It just sits there, not beckoning,
Nor evading
Leaving me the option, fully mine
No assistance it offers, no more than
availability

I wonder and I think what will become of him
How easy it would be were it not for him
But yet in this bleakness
Love still raises its head, still wins

To love another so much he says
Is to lay oneís life down for the sake
This is why my companion remains
Faithful yet powerless to get me to commit

This living you see it hurts beyond endurance
So what sustains I ask, where does abiding come from
It must be without description, limitless
Vast beyond space and time
bigger and roars in the face of this
Suffering and stands between me and my
Resolving Companion

Although I cannot identify fully with the feelings you powerfully express here there is a resonance for me, and I feel that in some ways we have trod the same path as we watched helplessly by. I thank God for the strength given to me and to my husband as he suffered serious illness, and pray for you and others who find themselves in need of Christs help. It does not always seem to be there, but I feel that if we can only open ourselves He will pour into us all manner of good things to help and sustain us in difficult times. God Bless.
