Sleep deprivation my heart weighed heavily upon this earth
As with each day, sorrowed breath
For what life’s day brought new, placing at my feet so worn
Until, one day I felt, deep within my soul, a need
A soul had called outstretched in deepest despair
A need, a yearn, a prayer.
A prayer was I, in humble solitude did plead
To find a soul in need, truly could I help
To ease their pain, to hide from pain my soul did yearn
To do God’s bidding, and move on in life
A rid of grave, and beauty dwell.
One day I found that soul I sought,
to ease their burden, and their pain
Little did I realise what else I was to gain.
Now my soul a friend has found, it’s Eternal mate!
