Gone

DSC_1996

Why does it seem like everything ends
just as it is beginning
A beautiful friendship
Lost in the crowd
of popularity and confusion
How do I get it back
I don’t think I can
No regrets until now
A spur of the moment night
turns a lifetime into dust
It’s all gone
The love, the memories and emotions
lost forever in this world full of chaos
Day after day, getting worse
and there’s nothing I can do about it
but think and worry and wonder and cry
Is it gone forever
Anything can happen and everything did
That is my problem
Now it’s over and I’m all alone
It’s gone forever

Where Is God?

4f877340-1df2-409f-9d2e-b88354897ee6

Where is God when my pain is strong
and I feel like I can’t go on
Does He stay by my side through all the hard times
or does He just leave and stay gone

Where is God when I am scared to death
and I don’t know where to turn
Does He walk next to me and keep me safe
or does He leave me alone to burn

Where is God when I am mourning a loss
and my heart has been broken in two
Does He carry me through these times
or does He expect me to know what to do

Where is God when my anger is rising
and I don’t know what to do
Does He help me to stay calm through these times
or does He sit back and watch the view

Where is God when I am happy for once
and my worries go away
Does He rejoice with me
or does He just leave for the day

Where is God when I am just living my life
Taking it day by day
I know where He is, He is right by my side
He always will be, in every way

So Many Emotions

Fear still consumes me
even after all these years
I still wake up at nightemotions(1)
wiping away so many tears

Confusion is what fills my soul
I don’t know how I should feel
Sometimes I’m mad and sometimes I”m sad
But I’m hoping one day I’ll be healed

I don’t know who I should trust
or how to stop the stress
I wish I could love and be loved in return
I can’t accept anything less

God, please take the pain away
I’m ready to let it go
I need to have a normal life
I have to stop feeling so low

The memories I have will stay with me
This is something I’ll never forget
But I have to forgive and release it all
Hey, happiness, it’s about time we met

A Poem For Doug

20121203-121716.jpgWhy am I so lost
I don’t know what to do
I think about you always
My feelings are nothing new
Since the day you left
My heart has not been whole
I have an emptiness inside
No one could take your role
I feel so helpless
I’m hurting inside
There’s nothing I can do
Why did you have to die
Now I can’t say I love you
I have no one to call my dad
You’re out of my life forever
My life just seems so sad
My anger is overflowing
It wasn’t your time to go
You took your own life
How could you do something so low
Selfish is how I describe you
You left without saying good-bye
Now I’m stuck here coping
Trying not to cry
But I am still so strong
I’ve made it through okay
I’m getting on with my life
Taking it day by day
I wish I had one last chance
So you could know how I feel
I wish you knew my pain
I wish that it wasn’t real

What an Inspiration!

20121128-173903.jpg

I had to write this morning about how amazing it is to find new poetry and poets. I have been unbelievably inspired by about five blogs I have recently found. They have also visited my blog and we seem to all have more in common than just our poetry. It is amazing how God works to bring people together in life that need to be in some way. I have been so inspired by their poetry and it has made me feel refreshed to write more poetry again. I feel so blessed to have this place to share my experiences and, as someone recently said to me “cleanse my soul.” Thank you to everyone who visits my blog. You are taking a piece of me with you every time you read something I write because it truly comes from my heart.  God Bless you!

 

Grieving Heart

My heart fills with grief for children I have not ever met
Yet, I know they live in torment,
we see it on out T.V. setstears
All around the world,
children abused, starve and die
My mind just races as I pray for them
and often wonder why
When will the day come
that our children might be safe
Will the anguish and torment stop
or is it already too late
We are often consumed
with the details of our little world
But what about all of these
other little boys and girls

When Life Hurts

32c6ed75-6816-4c94-809d-9856ffd3ab0dWhen life hurts or doesn’t make sense
Remember you are not alone
Always know God is there with you
You will never be alone

There are days in our lives when it’s hard to find hope
and we just don’t know how to go on
But, with God by our side, there’s nothing to fear
because we have that special bond

We are His children, so dear
no matter what happens in life
Never have doubt of our Father’s love
His promises will never die

God knows that we live in a hell on earth
and He mourns right by our side
That’s why He has prepared a special place
He calls it a paradise

Writing

_MG_5874

Writing has been my escape
from a world that has hurt me so
It heals me in a special way
when I feel so very low
It’s difficult to express my thoughts
Some days I shut down inside
But pen and paper can’t hurt my heart
and has never criticized
For several years I have written a lot
when I have felt so very alone
My writing has become my friend
when my thoughts begin to roam
As time has passed and days have gone by
I have shared the talents God gave to me
I used to hide it from the world
But now, I hope it may help others to heal

Why?

jesus_children_

I have turned to God and asked Him “Why?”
so many times throughout my life
and even though I didn’t understand
I know He heard my cries

The days went on and the nights passed by
just like they always do
and I know He was there watching over me
always saying “I love you”

During hardships and trials, I felt so alone
I thought nobody knew my pain
Even though I hadn’t told anyone
The Lord was walking with me in the rain

The trials won’t end until I leave this earth
That is the one thing I know for sure
but I also know God will be holding my hand
even when there doesn’t seem to be a cure
