Suffering

I pray for all my loved ones that are living today
It’s a shame some things we live with have to be that way
Thank the Lord He goes though them with us
We couldn’t live without him being beside us.

There are so many diseases around for us to suffer
I am so glad we have Jesus for our buffer
If it wasn’t for God’s good grace
Some things we wouldn’t be able to face.

I ask Him to come real soon
I’m tired of dancing to someone else’s tune
His timing is not the same as mine
Of course that is by design.

There is so much suffering today
I’m not sure just what to say
What can we do to change things?
Ask for blessings on angels wings.

Sometimes our loved ones are here today
Then suddenly they are gone away
They didn’t want to go
But I’m sure they didn’t know

How much those who were left alone
Were left hurting to the bone
That our hearts for them would bleed
And no one else but God could feel our need.

The hurt will someday fade
But just look at the price we paid
Oh, God please heal our pain
And help us to once again be sane.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
