I didnít know what was on her mind
But something told me it was there all the time
Something drew her to the meeting that night
So I stopped and prayed sheíd be alright

I didnít know her name or age
I politely asked,
She answered, ďPage."
"Iíll soon been turning twenty nine, donít know how I made it through this time.Ē
She didnít say what she had, had to face
All I knew is she was drawn that place.

A treardrop fell,
She could barley speak,
ďIím not here to talk, just a little weak.Ē

Do you mind if I lift you up in prayer,
Though she said yes,
With disbelief she just stood and stared.

ďIíve been a christian almost all my life, but donít know why things donít turn out right. Iím tired and weary, sad and confused,Ē
I softly interupted,
ďGodís still there for you.Ē

She hardly believed the words I spoke,
I could tell in her eyes
Nothing awoke.

Her heart was cold,
Hardened at best,
Whatever she faced
Her life felt a mess.

And I knew that once the night had ended
Sheíd need my prayers
And so they accended

Everyday there are woman like Page
Young and old it donít matter their age,
The broken hearted,
Hurt and depressed,
Desperatly seeking a place to find rest.

Keep them in prayer
Though you donít know their names
They search for a road of clarity
For the Lord to pave.

An apt word of encouragement!

Be careful of minor errors in spelling, capitalization, and word choice...maybe another pair of eyes to double-check this pre-publication?

My heart goes out to the Pages of this world.

A powerful message.

I was a bit distracted by the inconsistent structure of this - and some spelling errors. You might want to have someone look over your entry for spelling mistakes.

This poem definitely moved me!
