Painful Prayers

The words
Thoughts
Tears
I pray
Finally
See light of day

As they fall
Cascade
Flow
My aching heart
Begins to grow

Grow
Stretch
Tear
Heal
Scars to show
Loves tight seal

Sealed
Held
Treasured
Found
Truth revealed
Lessons profound

Prayers of pain
Relief
Grief
Necessary
Foster belief

Thankfulness
Lined with love
Gifts received
From up above

Painful prayers
Hopes
Dreams
You already know
All my extremes

A Prayer

Presents of mind
A single moment, defined
With heaven aligned
A prayer

Honest reflection
In His hands of protection
Seeking direction
A prayer

Healing of pains
Admitting he reigns
Amid campaigns
A prayer

Speaking no word
Still being heard
Heard and assured
A prayer
