The rescue


The rescue

Deep… deep inside…

In the land of sorrow… where I reside

Only pain reigns

Love grows rebellious

Hope stands defiant

Passion is resistance

There, as my heart wrestles with sleep

Grief runs deep

Cutting through mountains

In caves and underground

Far beyond my reach

It was raining agony… that day

Restless… agitated… weighed down

Haunted by my nightmare

You’re never coming home

Looking up… into sky

Yelling for help

The soul murmurs

Here I am God… exhausted… give me your hand… come to my aid

Here I am God… full of sorrow… and anguish… ease my pain

Here I am God… hurt and tired… help me…hold me… heal me

Here I am God… lonely… be my friend and companion

Here I am God… lost… guide me… show me the way

Like a dazzling morning at the crack of dawn dispelling all darkness

Like gentle rain drops drizzling over a parched piece of land

Like a rainbow flowing piercing through thick murky clouds

Like sweet scent of love drifting capturing your heart

Like a velvet ruby rose blooming right before your eyes

Like a soft warm blanket in a cold winter night

Like a tender mother’s hand stroking her child

I felt

God’s loving-hand

Then…

Then this sweet… sweet comfort

Overwhelming

Mesmerizing

Enchanting

Caressing

Transforming

That troubled heart and distressed soul

13217184_1016687168427929_5027722703579553708_o 

In this land of sorrow

Suddenly

Pain is overthrown and Passion regains again

And sweet… sweet comfort falls down as rain

Calm descends

Serenity prevails

Joy blooms

And sweet… sweet comfort falls down as rain
