Closer than a prayer

father and child ~ trust him image


Sometimes I..

feel quite lost, isolated and alone

despite having a loving husband,

family and friends to call my own

Deep down there is a space, a place

no one can really fill, where

tears are cried and often spill

Because we..

are built for sharing and community

yet feel afraid of others knowing

the ugly truth and full reality

of who we are and how we feel

inside, so we tend to pull and

shy away, conceal and hide

But you..

have a way of penetrating

the deep recesses of our heart

seeing all we are and can be,

understanding every part

Coming closer than a whispered prayer,

a breath exhaled, as you draw near

So please..

be here and

stay close to me

just as you have promised

you will be

    • Thank you for taking the trouble to read and leave a sweet comment, Keren! I know your energy and focus are limited and I really appreciate it. Bless you, friend. 🙂 xx

  1. Oh Joy! That was lovely. I could completely relate to your words. As much as I may display…there is still so much I conceal. Thankfully, Jesus is fully aware and there. Dropping by today from FMF. I really enjoyed your poem.

    • Hi Kelly. I’m so pleased this spoke to you. We have much to be thankful for because Jesus knows us inside out and nothing is concealed to Him. As you say, He is “fully aware and there.” Thanks very much for stopping by. It’s lovely to meet you! God bless. 🙂

    • Angela, I echo your words of being, “so glad that God has promised to always be near” as that makes all the difference in this world and the next. Bless you for stopping by, friend. 🙂
