This piece is fictional and intended as a prayer to comfort those who may be be an exile from their families for what ever reason. May God help them through their ordeal.

Good morning Dear Lord; how are You?
I just need a bit of Your time;
To listen to the words I say,
To ease this wounded heart of mine.

Lord, I’ve tried, You know how I’ve tried,
But the trail is always one way;
Maybe now’s the time to let go,
So to You I have come to pray.

They chose to keep me out of their lives,
They ignore me and keep me away;
But thanks to the wisdom You provide,
I’m part of Your family this day.

And so I let go and let You,
Handle all of my cares and strife;
And thanks to Your most loving ways,
I can simply get on with life.

While those closest to me do care,
And I love them with all my heart;
So this day Lord, I make a vow,
This special day means a new start.

Just one more thing I ask of You,
Lord won’t You take the hurt away;
It’s in Your hands; I trust in You,
In Your care I’ll forever stay.

Wonderful poem Paul. The most valuable life lesson is to realize we're not in control, He is. There's a saying:

"Troubles are oft times the tools by which God fashions us for better things."

Bless you,
Marcia

They chose to keep me out of their lives,
They ignore me and keep me away;
But thanks to the wisdom You provide,

I think many will relate, Paul; and I hope they find solace and encouragement via your verses here. Love and blessings,

you have beautiful sentiments inside your poem Paul
and also some very sound advive too:
"And so I let go and let You,
Handle all of my cares and strife;
And thanks to Your most loving ways,
I can simply get on with life."

It is crucial to let go
a gift we all can give to ourself

Beautiful heartfelt prayer. As I was preparing Thanksgiving dinner this year, I was thinking about people who have no family to go home too on Thanksgiving and wondering how they spend their day. I hope they said a prayer just like this one.
