This is a poem I’ve been working on. I’m not sure it’s done yet. I’ll probably be tweaking it over the next few days. Like always, your thoughts, comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Lord I never realized
There were so many shades of…
The ebony darkness…all around me,
I’m trying not to drown.
And drawn ever deeper.
Oh Lord, it’s so dark… I just can’t see!
Coming down all around me,
Smothering me…drowning me.
Drawing the life right out of me…
I’m still holding on.
The blackness…fading to gray
Lord I swear it’s getting brighter, better.
God…what’s coming over me?
Rainbows of colors, bringing a smile to my face.
Life…so precious and dear,
And you…ever so near.
Calling me…urging me on…believing in…
Bringing me back…
To a life, I suddenly love.
Your words, your actions, your love,
Bring meaning, a will to move on.
I want to live,
All because of…you!
