Hope – A Poem

on

Nights long and sleepless
Days long and restless

The heart longing
and find ruminating

Of

What might have been
What could have been

“Think happy thoughts” – they said
“With difficultly, comes ease” – they said

But her heart is too heavy
to feel happy
So she stares blankly

Hoping for a better tomorrow
As she wallows in sorrow.

    Hope without the Lord Jesus Christ is temporal.

    β€œbut those who trust in the Lord will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not become weary, they will walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).
