"When you feel like giving up, remember why you held on for so long in the first place." -Anonymous

I am stuck with
A painful curse
And the pain only
Seems to get worse

With words we
Always fight
Through it all, I
Managed to see a light

In this darkness
It's me you've found
It's you who
Heard my sound
In you I stand
On solid ground

All those times
I fell
You were there
My guardian Angel

All this time you
Held out a hand
You are my solid
Rock on which I stand

To my path you
Give light
To my eyes you
Give me sight

Your truth sets
Me free
You have cleared my
Path of all debree

He makes
Everything new
His words are
Trustworthy and true

You will wipe every
Tear from every eye,
There will be no death
To mourn or cry

We have no pain
To weep
Death has no
Victory to keep

We sing praises
To our King
Death, you have
NO sting

You tell us to
Forget the past
For it does
Not last

We are alive because
Of you day to day
No one can undo
What you say

You chose me
As your kid
I have a joy that
Is not easily hid

In this life I have
Never been alone
Through your grace
Your love has been shown

You love me when
I was all wrong
You loved me
All along

You have given me
Something to believe
By my side you
Will never leave

Your life
Was sinless
Although mine isn't
You said yes

You're the one who
Paid the price
Your love isn't by
The luck of the dice

I didn't choose you
You chose me
By your grace, you
Have set me free

A wretch like
Me you sought
For my soul
You fought

You are conqueror
Of my sin
You don't care
Where I've been

To my chains
I was a slave
For me you
Conquered the grave
Your life you
Freely gave

In your word I
Can strongly stand
All I have to do
Is take your hand.

~Kahlil Gibran

This is very true, with great rhythm. The poem itself was very heartlifting.

Isn't it wonderful to have one that you can put your faith in and who puts neverending faith in you? Thanks for writing this encouraging poem.
