Mourning

Sixty days she’d walked alone,
counting memories along the way.
She stumbled every now and then
but knew she couldnt fall.
Her mind was full of images;
her heart was full of grief.
Too many nights alone,
many days that would not end.

Now she sits on her garden seat,
bought together one summer’s day.
Tears spilling down her cheeks
lost in a world without her Paul.
She knows her life must go on;
her mind still filled with disbelief.
With every breath it hurt,
alone, she cannot comprehend.

One day shell fall in love once more,
with a restored heart to give away.
For now, she lives with memories
that she cannot help recall.
His presence’s felt all around;
memories bring fruitless relief.
Worst of all, no doubt about it,
she had lost her very best friend.

Autumn leaves fall to the ground,
like her tears they do portray.
Her face stings with salty wetness
she wipes them away it with assurance tall.
Shell face new challenges boldly;
yet still, sorrow will not be brief.
Time will heal and life will go on,
and her mourning heart will mend.

Desire

Words of truth, words so pure,
Gentle words in sweetest song
Kindest thoughts that touch the heart,
A strong desire to seek his will.

Blowing gently as a breeze,
His Spirit fills my deepest needs;
I can always dare to hope
A deep longing to know His will.

Holy lives in holy ways,
To live in truth of love and peace;
Deep desires to learn His truth
Knowing I will find His will.

Moving freely in His Grace,
His Spirit leads me all the way;
Should I dare to hope, I know
He will guide me into His will.
