It’s been a long time since I last wrote a poem. I actually never thought I’ll write one again. But a friend of mine recently lost her Mom who was truly dear to me and so, I wrote this:
Sometimes I do not understand
why things happen and life gets out of hand.
It just doesn’t make sense to me
how it could all happen so suddenly.
But I know someone from up above
is looking down at me with love.
He knows just what I need
He knows yours, too, indeed!
Just look at the stars at night,
don’t they shine so bright?
But it has to be dark for us too see
and the stars don’t know that, so do we.
So when things around us grow dim
and life is falling apart – or so it seems.
Remember that even though we don’t know why
TRUST! – and know that our Father is truly wise.
