Lost

 

Totally abandoned and all alone,
she's left to fend for herself in a world so cruel, so unknown.
Just a few days ago all was fine,
till she fell asleep at the wheel, and crossed that yellow line.

How she survived the crash is anybody's guess,
but the one fact she does know is it left her life in a horrible mess.
A loving husband and her baby boy, now just memories and the hurt won't go away,
she was a good mother and a loving wife, is what she heard the people say.

But in her own mind those dark clouds will never set her free,
how can that love ever be replaced, she exclaims it can never be.
With no will to live, she lowers her head and bends her knees,
and cries out Father, I need you, please, please hear my pleas!

In almost an instant, a calm feels the room,
and she feels a peace start to blossom and bloom.
As quickly as the burden came,
it's lifted along with all the blame.

With a new lease on life, the world is not so bad,
although she still misses the ones she loved, her memories now are of the good times that
they once had.
With God in your heart and a prayer on your lip,
the love and mercy of God gives you strength and a mighty powerful partnership!

    Ronald it has been a while; I wanted to pass through. Such a sad poem I've chosen to read; but beautiful none-the-less. I could not image her pain; and I've had quite a bit myself. But I love the peace you gave her in this writing :) I'm glad she found peace. Beautiful RB

    Just was wondering are you still writing songs, hope you are, cause they are so good. I rarely write poetry anymore.Seems most everyone that was on the soup have slowly packed up and left. I still can't get over you coming back do you realize your last posting was back in February 2010, that's a long time, please stay in touch. Forever friends Ron
