"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'happy'. They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life."

I can feel your presence,
The calming sense of you next to me.
I feel welcomed as your arms enclose around me,
And I know that I am safe.

You flood my thoughts, making me smile.
When I feel lonely, you're always there with me.
You see my thoughts and feel my emotions;
When I am down, you lift me back up, and take my sadness.

When I need you, you're always there.
Your presence is uplifting, relieving my suffering.
Your love fills my heart with joy;
Your sacrifice fulfills and exceeds my expectations.

Because of you, I can finally breathe.
Because of your presence, I am a different person.
Thank you for saving me;
Thank you for your presence in my life.

The author's comments:

I wrote this poem because people should realize that even though Jesus is dead, He can still save us: even if it's not what we expect, Jesus is still here, even if not physically.
