Comfort Of The Holy Spirit

I remember
It was the passing on of my father
The world stopped 
I wept till tears blurred my vision
It was so intense I fell asleep with a headache
Nothing and no one could console me
People prayed with and for me
My heart pounded so hard with grief
I thought I will die myself
In the cool of the night 
In serenity with in coherent musings
My friend and comforter
Overwhelmed me with love
He even led me to the truth
I began to understand the mystery of death
From this wretched earth to eternal peace and glory
A blissful mystery only the spiritually
Wealthy can understand
Spirit of God full of love we humans can’t understand
My first heart break was just like my fathers passing on
My heart physically ached
My tears where like ice block
I wondered if there is anything like true love
I meditated on death
Hoping I will transit to the world beyond
The pain was unbearable
I lost trust for mankind
Nights, midnights, I cried to sleep
I wished I could make the pain vanish
Just like removing my jacket
I was messed up emotionally
Love became sour 
At that point I could have been recruited by Satan for destruction of souls
But Gods spirit restrained me
And wrapped me in His everlasting love and comfort
The balm of Gilead healed me and took me
Through the process of regeneration
Oh Holy Spirit
Your comfort and love who 
Can know the depth
For you are a generous friend and lover and comforter
Thank you Holy Spirit.
