Soft Whisper


I was loney and scared,
Believed that no one cared,
Lost in this big world you see,
And no one ever looking for me,
My heart was broke,
And everyone thought it was a joke,
I was lost in my own sorrow,
Hoping for a brighter tomorrow,

There was a whisper in my ear,
That said I am here,
For I never left you alone,
It was me that has kept you strong,
You are my child and I love you,
I will forever see you thru,

For so many years,
I shed a lot of tears,
But it all disappeared,
When I heard the soft whisper in my ear.

    Yes! I love this poem's simplicity in its word choice and structure. Simplicity is powerful and its beauty is graceful. Excellent writing here. Perhaps the Holy Spirit was whispering in your ear as you put pen to paper here. (Report) Reply

    Tear-invoking; indeed filled with sorrow and a guardian angel to lift the heaviness to achieve airy peace

    Yes, God is always there for us and we are reminded of this only when hard times come...think of God in good times too, as our Saint Kabir says. Congrats on being poem of the day... (Report) Reply

    Only the deep call on the deep. God speaks in small still voice. The only problem is that we sedomly listen. Thank God you heard well when He spoke. Keep getting closer to Him. Good poem. I give 10/10 (Report) Reply

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
