This is a reflection on loss...

Heartache, sorrow, betrayal, grief, loneliness... 
    trail tears of scorn.

Sleepless nights, fretting, self-loathing,
    mourning, depression, negativity:  be eschewed.
Bless the Lord, oh my soul!

The Promised One sticketh closer than a brother, and/2/
    He will never leave or forsake His own./3/

He is the First and the Last/4/, the Beginning and the End/5/.

/1/ Psalm 103:1, 2, 22
/2/ Proverbs 18:24
/3/ Hebrews 13:5
/4/ John 1:1-14
/5/ Revelation 1:11

Scripture references are taken from the King James Version of the Holy Bible.
