Lilac Wine


Dear God where are you?


Dear God where are you?

I looked up at the sky one sad painful day
Through my darkness anger and pain I saw
Beautiful hues of blissful blues
Clouds Billowing like Sheets of silken dreams
Vanilla ice cream swirls of cotton candy
I could almost taste yet not touch
Unreachable untouchable
So out of reach
Where are you?
I silently screamed
You said you would always be here
Yet I do not see you
Dear God where are you?

I closed my eyes stood on my toes and reached out
I Prayed
Dear god, help me
I Whispered
Dear god, forgive me
I Cried and begged
Dear god, love me, for I will always be your child

Swaying in the breeze feeling the winds sweep through my hair
To my ears came a sweet melody making my heart dance with joy
Then from a parting in the clouds came the hand of god
I witnessed it beckoning to me reassuring and so softening
I took his hand and sat upon a cloud and he enveloped me
Soothing energising and exhilarating
Touching caressing my entire being
And in his softness and warmth
I felt wanted and loved found forgiveness
I found him for he lives in my heart and not in the clouds

I dedicate this poem to everyone who is looking for God….
Look deep within your heart for you will find him

    When your time has come,
    you shall be the poet who sits beside God
    spinning such heavenly verse.

    Absolutely beautiful
    written to perfection.
    perhaps by the hand of God himself (Report) Reply

    Easy to find but hard at time to believe and trust. What a beautiful letter in the form of a prayer poem.. Think sometimes we search in all the wrong places too. marci.xo (Report) Reply

    God is something a lot of people search for, but never find. People look for him in the wrong places, when they should be looking with inside themselves. An Awesome poem. Beautifully expressed. Top Marks from me and thanks for sharing it my friend.

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
