NEVERENDING GRIEF

For me, this grief will never end.
It goes on and on and on.
Ive taken one step forward,
and two steps back.
Since my one true loves been gone.

How can I get past this? I ask myself.
As I pace back and forth in my room.
I still cant believe that hes not coming back.
He was taken from us way too soon.

Ive questioned You, Lord
As to the reason why,
You take those who are needed on earth.
The only answer that You have supplied,
Is that our hairs are numbered at birth.

Like Jesus .. D. came with a purpose and plan,
It was written a long time ago.
If everyone knew when that day would arrive,
Wed wrap our lives neatly tied up with a bow.

Please forgive me, Lord,
When doubts start creeping in.
I know Satan loves to see me cry.
Thank You, too, for the gift that You gave to me.
One Ill love and miss till the day that I die.

A very beautiful poem. I know about about pain. I also lost someone that I love but I know that that person I will see in heaven. Yet despite the pain, you(we)do have a task that Our Heavenly Father has given you(us) and as saints we will honour Him if we do it. God bless you.Thanks for your heart.

Grief is going to ride a roller coaster of emotions. I have no magic formula to take it from you. I do know Sweet Jesus holds every tear, every heartache. He is going to give you peace and freedom from the intensity of the pain ! Hang on and believe it Gerti. This is so beautifully written, love you my sister.

Hi Gerti, I completely understand what you are feeling. My husband of 40 yrs was taken from me 6 yrs ago. I still feel pretty much the same. It never ends. Just stay close to God, he's the only help and comfort we have, is what I have found. God bless you.
