Oh what will I do now

I just can’t imagine it somehow

You told me just the other day

I’d be just fine

But how can that be

I don’t have you to guide me


What sign should I look for

How should I begin to heal

The part of my life that I shared with you

The stories and secrets we told

The minutes, hours and days we stole

I know what I’ve seen

I know how serene

Wondering why you got to go first

When it’s me who had such a thirst

To go back to the other side


Everyone leaves me

I dread getting close

I know my mission

The Lord explained his vision

But after all, I think he may have picked the wrong one

To try and ease their fears

Take away their tears

And hold their hand

To the promise land

For most they just smile or nod

Thinking I’m some weird blond

No matter my clarity

Or sincerity


Your word they often don’t hear

Only their inner message, a lifetime of fears

I often think I’m too weak

To continue talking about what they don’t seek

I try to stay strong

To promote the message you sent along

but in flesh and blood form, I often think of my wants

Weakening to my inner taunts

Dear Lord can I come home yet?

You speak to the many, though thoughts from your soul. How soothing and inspirational...

Be always safe,
Reviewed by Cynthia Buhain-Baello 4/23/2009
Your poem tells what we all feel for our loved ones, that they may find strength, direction, and peace in God alone, and I know in my heart God sees our unspoken wish, and He blesses that by moving on the hearts of our family. "My Word will not return to Me void, it will accomplish My purpose" "May He grant your desires and make all your plans succeed."
(PSALM 20:4)

Patricia, utter weariness comes to mind. Tomorrow is a new day...perhaps a rest, a pause and then pick up the mantel again? We are where He wants us. Prayers for you. Be well, Kathy
