An emotional poem about suffering and hope...
Makes me think, that’s all she wrote.
Nothing more that I may gain
Except constant grief and aching pain.
Great deliverance, taking stride,
Human guilt, but God at our side,
Travelling numerous, unpaved miles,
Heartbroken folks, with countless trials.
With courage and honor, I make a vow
To sing anew, with emotions, and how!
Within me now, is the God-given gift,
To sacrifice, giving my loved ones a lift...
How could they care, but how could they not?
Because tears of pain are all I’ve brought.
So I’ll cry some tears of joy instead,
Positive, fruitful thoughts in my head.
