When we see what is transpiring in the world today, words fail.  I wrote this poem in 2009.  It expresses something of my heart to those who have lost their loved ones in these recently much darker days.

Words for this Time

There are words that some will say

When sadly others can’t

Some things that can be changed

When others simply can’t

Peace within a disturbing place

When we cannot understand

Answers that are hidden

Within the Father’s hand

Of one thing I am sure

God’s love is always there

His comfort free to all of us

His presence at your prayer

So take time now to let Him hug

And hold you tight in Grace

Until you’re ready to move on

To future life embrace
