GAZE – poetry

August 29, 2020

I look but I cannot see

My eyes are clouded with dust

The storms are dark up ahead

That’s when I must gaze on our trust

 

Daily my heart is bombarded

With sad thoughts of days gone by

Where did all the good thoughts go

To find them I really have to try

 

But they are there with certainty

Glistening and shining true

The things that God has done for me

The light comes shining through

 

Where is my rhyme and reason

It’s so hard to obtain

Life sometimes seems like a circle

Like an echoing refrain

 

The days are long and endless

I can’t help but wish for it’s end

But then there is that hopeful treasure

Of life’s best coming once again

 

Believing without seeing

Trust without the feels

Life by faith must be experienced

Then you know what is real

 

On Christ the solid rock I can stand

He is always true

Unmovable and unshakeable

Is how I know its You

 

So rocky and crazy the path ahead

One place my head can rest

That you will never leave me, no

I can lay my head on Your chest

 

So now I say a long needed prayer

Come to me Lord let me know

Thoughts of our beautiful heaven again 

And a joy in knowing I will go
