I Know You'Re There
Poem By Kathryn Tyler King
When I’m not aware of Your presence
I don’t see Your hand or hear Your voice
I will still Bless Your entire existence.
I will make that decision and that choice.
When I’m tired and worn from my age.
When my body aches and seems weak
I’ll praise Your name although strange
I’ll wait for that kiss upon my cheek.
You aren’t far even though it may seem
That I go through the motions every day.
Let me sense You as I sleep and dream
So my heart won’t ever leave but stay.
When everything in my life is passing,
And no one is there to caress my face.
Help me Lord in prayer and in fasting
To heal the hurts that only You can erase.
It’s only a phase someone might just say
That I am feeling too much and have lost
Who I am and perhaps have lost my way
But You Lord know how much it has cost.
You know Lord what I have been through.
No one can judge me. No one can know
The tearing, the pain, what can I really do?
I’ll trust You to take it that Your Spirit flow.
There are tears that haven’t even poured.
I hate missing my husband and emptiness.
I want You to fill me that I might soar
Through the rest of my days be blessed.
Thank You Lord that I can even express
My heart’s longing and my need for You.
I need Your strong arms just to caress
And make me no longer melancholy blue.
