Such disappointment fills my heart,
Confusion, sadness reigns within,
Need others to concern impart.
I feel I’m at the end of self,
Express concerns to those around.
I listen for their words, some help,
But only silence to be found.
Ache reaches deeper than before
And hopelessness pervades my soul.
Emotions cannot be ignored.
I feel it’s all beyond control.
Pain greater than I’ve ever known;
Convinced my heart will never mend.
Depressed and feeling all alone,
Consider how to make it end.
A time when only one voice speaks,
Half-heartedly, I’m listening.
“It will not always be so bleak.
Good will come out of struggling.
Please know how much I understand.
My child, let Me hold you close.
I’ll bless you with My healing hand;
I’ll give you what you need the most.
Don’t let this time in life destroy
The treasures that I have for you.
In time, you’ll walk in peace and joy.
Please trust Me now for what to do.
I’ll give you anything you need.
I beg you not to make it end.
Your healing journey I will lead;
I’ll be your confidant, your friend.”
Though hesitant, I know He’s right.
In tears, I enter warm embrace.
I know as He and I unite,
He’ll shower me with love and grace.
Though tired, worn and beaten up,
I’ll keep on going – make the choice.
I know He will provide enough.
I’m thankful for His loving voice.
