Mountains and Moonlight

Nights without sleep, I stayed up and cried
Things never got any better no matter how I tried
Then I felt a warmth, but no one was with me
Then I heard my child fear not for I am always with thee

My tears came to an immediate stop
Needless to say I was in total shock
I sat there frozen because I didn’t know what to do
A voice said: there’s no problem that I can’t bring you through

I then in a weak voice asked, God is that you
He answered and said yes I am here to help you
I’ve heard every whimper and every moan
There’s no reason for you to be alone

I have felt your pain, and saw every tear
So I came to comfort you, so don’t you fear
It is times like these I cherish the most
When I get to hold my children close

He said look in front and tell me what you see
And then look up and tell me what is displayed plainly
Darkness in front but the moonlight shined bright
That’s how you can see where you are going even though it’s night

When you stand in front of mountains at night
Look up where you can see the moon light
Put on your boots, climb up and rise to it
And know that it was I who just brought you through it

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
