In
With the
Cloudy day
I found substance of
Strength, like roots of oaks from my
Parent’s backyard in the days I fought trouble.

I
Found will
Strength to call
Hope to rely on
Tomorrow’s sunshine with you
Forgetting my wayward acts and reasons for.

You
My will
My answer
To forgiving me
And turning mistakes to Psalms
Even though my errors totaled eighty-six.

In
On the
Longest day
Where shards from glass of
Shattered windowpanes in my
Blue eyes caused suffering and painful trouble.

I
Lost will
Faith to call
And love to lean on
Chose not to remember you
Clinging to failures as friends and reasons for.

You
Your will
Your answer
For helping old me
Was singing to my soul Psalms
Even though my errors totaled eighty-six.

In
The day
Of my trou-
ble I will call on
You. For you will answer me.
Psalms Chapter Eighty-six verse seven. Amen.

Great poem in an unusual style.
I loved the picturesque lines... "Where shards from glass of
Shattered windowpanes in my
Blue eyes caused suffering and painful trouble."

Wonderful choice of Psalm too.
Well done!
