You watched a tear

Springing from my heart

Joining with the river

Falling down below.

You called my name

I did not reply

Instead You saw my heart

I couldn’t kneel to pray.

You brought me comfort

All I saw was pain

Yet even in my blindness

I saw You smile at me.

Hope came tumbling down

You pulled me out again

Lifting up my heart

Bowing down to You.

You heard my whisper

As I turned my head

Now facing distant scenes

Watching at the gates.

You felt my brokenness

It drove through Your hands

Blood spilling down like rivers

Giving down below.

I enjoy personal writing (poetry and prose), editing and reading. I want to share my writing with a new audience, dusting off some of my older poems as well as writing new material. The aim is to encourage and inspire!
