Sacred Soul

Child I've heard thou reverent pleas,
Loathsome sickness please take from me,
Tortured lungs through which you barely gasp,
Toil in pain and through breathing rasp!

Weakness comes as you lay bedridden and frail,
Darkness creeps and misery hopes to prevail,
Child I watch and protect you from up above,
GOD in heaven sends angels pouring out His love!

To bathe you with healing and strength to press on,
Listen to Him child,He annoints you in healing song,
His Word casts the darkness and demons from your mind,
You're His sacred soul and in Him, true love you will find!

Child as you go through this trial, stronger will you be,
Satan will be cast down, GOD's power will set you free,
Barriers that he has set will turn to dust as you pray,
Dragon warrior you will be; by faith your course will stay!

    Thank you Anne Lise, I love to write and allow others to 'see' as I write. I do believe that you have a daughter in here as well, she is someone that also allows a reader to take the journey with her. She is very talented!

    Laila I am glad you liked this poem, it is for Jenn who was bedridden with badly damaged lungs, she is the daughter of a friend on another poetry site I belonged too. I wanted to share it here too, as it is a prayer of hope and love. Love Jane

    Thank you Laura, it is for a special lady who has a rare disease called LAM, it is nasty, it bores holes into healthy lungs until you can't breathe without assistance from a machine. Equally tragic she has now new lungs but for her to have them another family lost a love one! And Jenn's new lungs will someday be attacked unless a cure is found! Love Jane

    This is a very powerful poem! It is so sad and moving - almost brought me a tear. Quite an entertainign read and definably worth reading again. Thanks for this! Always, Laura Ps: My captcha code had "eh" in it. Thought that was an intersting coincidence.
