Grace…

My face was wet with tears, which fallen from my soul
Had drifted, deeply from the place my heart had hidden all my pain
My shattered mind, distressed, seemed to have failed the test
Of placid peace and harmony I had appointed my refrain

My hope, stretched delicate, brittle, flimsy, frail,
Lay wrecked and ruined, at my feet where my composure failed
So broken and distraught, I hung my head and cried
Lifting silent prayers: Dear Lord, Please rescue me from where I lie.

My comfort knew no bounds, for when his answer came
The velvet touch of peace relieved my soul from every strain
His calming words brought joy, which soothed my aching heart
His presence close beside my fear, delivered me a pristine start

I knelt in gratitude, for I could not repay
A single grain of what I owed for giving me this brighter day
Instead his message came, benevolently on the breeze
There is no cost or fee assessed, just share my gift with all who need
