Tears now rolling down my cheeks,
this depth of pain I find I’m in as I try to sleep.
This pain relief I now must take
Shook reduced not now, these have worked
Tears now find I, rolling down my cheeks.
Again I’m woken by this pain,
Please not now, that dream was good.
Dragged through depths where dungeons once groaned
This pain, has led this tortuous soul must go.
Through strength of breath and functional mind,
Doth now my mind fight back
Though singular the step, backwards this pain
Takes control with each new breath.
In breath of God showers His love, His blessings true.
How can you tell? I hear you doubt.
For with each breath springs forth
new growth, that all is well,
My heart-felt prayers, for now He’s heard.
Now I sleep indeed in pain, and yes, though deepened
Still hurt I, my body’s’ weakened state.
Yet, now my soul takes flight
through heart-felt knowledge I’m not alone,
for God hears all, and sings my song
which grows in faith that conquers now,
This pain, once depthed, through His Eternal, Divinity and Love
Clothed-wiped my cheeks, my eyes, my brow
For now my heart lowered, and sad
Do I now hang high with faith-led breath.
