Of all my poems, this one is by far the most popular with the readers of my poetry.
“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”—Psalm 34:18 New International Version (NIV)

Little sparrow, what troubles Thee;
      is it the stigma that You face?
Little sparrow, what pierces Thee;
      is it the shame of Your disgrace?

Is it the brokenness that's in Your heart,
      or the sorrows You can't outlive?
Is it the anguish that sets You apart,
      or the hurt that holds You captive?

Whatsoever befalls You
      is neither unfelt nor unknown;
know that God cares and calls You
      when You're left out and all alone.

God will never forsake You
      in Your time of great need;
God will never desert You
      when You suffer or bleed.
