INVISIBLE EYES

Written by: esther robinson

Her life became a wilderness
For not being a symbol of barrenness
Therefore, she walked through vast wilderness
That echoed lifeless barrenness

Mortal tongue that once did approve
‘Build my family’ now did disapprove
Abraham although displeased couldn’t reprove
What Sarah his mistress already did approve

“Water! I want water!” Cried Hagar’s son
Truly this situation carries no fun
Nothing remained of the water and bun
Hagar and Ismael encountered death under sun

She left her son to cry on the ground
Lifting her voice she turned around
None to weep with her was found
God’s help felt there was so profound

Like Hagar, are you a single parent?
Struggling in this earth a temporary tent
Desperately fighting your emotions to vent
Look at the ‘Invisible Comforter’ God has sent

Like Abraham, are you a worried parent?
Separation of your children cannot prevent
With unspeakable emotions to vent
Look at the ‘Invisible Comforter’ God has sent

Whoever or whatever state you may be
The eyes of the Lord run to and fro to see
Waiting to hear your cry to set you free
If wilderness turns a watered garden – there is HE
