~3 Fear Flew Away...

Its so hard to be strong
when 'Strength' has ran away
to a place just out of reach
I pray 'it' will come back one day.

Heard some news that saddened me
prayed to God for 'strength' to come
and sit and and visit me on top
a mound of fear far away from psalms.

The fear it kept me up this night
of losing someone dear to me
someone who mere knowing was sick
it pulled at me as it shredded me.

My eyes close now as my fingers
found the familar well worn keys and...
as I drift off to sleep, I feel God
pick me up, then lay me down to sleep.

Shelly we all have a inner strength that sometimes we just don't realise that pulls us through the sadness in our lives. We may think we are weak at times and that's when that inner strength kicks in. We have to be strong for those we love who are ill. We have give them some of our strength to get better. Beautiful poem my friend. Top marks and thanks for sharing it. David
