The Need to Weep

003

Sometimes in life there is a need

To bitterly mourn and grieve

Or to quietly, even silently weep.

As not each and every day

Is a time to joyously celebrate

Or participate in a festive holiday.

For there are moments in life

As in the morning we arise

We are met with shock and strife.

Over a sudden and jarring event

That leaves us with inward discontent

And in a state of hurt and bewilderment.

Such as the loss of a dear loved one

Or that of our most faithful friend

And instantly we know, life will never be the same.

Also too we sometimes suddenly lose

All we have and the world we once knew

And our hearts cannot help feeling heavy and blue.

Suddenly the world before our eyes

Had changed too fast and so we sigh

Wondering about this changed new life.

“Now what is going to happen to me?

And how will this new and altered life be?

I need help to understand and see.”

Days pass by like a blurring parade;

Sometimes I awake feeling brave

But often I am very afraid.

Night time can be hardest of all

As I lay in bed as darkness falls

Feeling all alone with no one to call.

But somewhere inside is a deep desire

To rise again triumphant over the fire;

The flames of trouble and sticky quagmire.

Where I know I felt utterly trapped

By the dark side which need not last

As one bright day all will be in the past.

Time to rise up ever so victoriously

And choose to live in faith and believe

Good days are still ahead stretching into eternity.

So on this though gloomy and dreary day

I will arise and to the Lord will pray,

“Thank you Lord for helping me along the way.”

For it is he who guides my heart and my mind;

Showing me his grace time after time

Through showers of love and mercy intertwined.

That doesn’t mean life will be perfectly sweet;

There will be difficult days and troubled sleep

And that need to bitterly and quietly weep.

Then I remember Jesus is there when down I fall;

He is with me when the darkness swallows all

And will never leave until we stand again triumphant after all.
