You Are

Poetry

You are the quiet I find in my heart

You are the stillness I seek

You are my wise counselor

You are my source of peace

Heavy

Poetry

Ouch!  Like I said before, I’m going through some of my older writings and this one struck me as so heavy.  It, to me, paints a picture of a heavy laden, burdened heart, seeking answers and relief during a season of struggle

Passing by in songs of silence

I watch You work behind the scenes

Questions and doubts about this tapestry painted

Looking to see beyond the fog

 

Answers lingering here and there

Reality mixed with fiction, what is true?

Longing for the days my memory clings to

When I knew You, the You I could fathom

 

But, now sin enters the picture and doesn’t leave

It’s always hanging around

Spurring burdens on my heart

How does this fit into the picture?

 

I am waiting, learning and asking for You

I feel that my heart has some heavy needs

I’ll write down what I feel I’ve learned

And ask You again to take the lead.
