Don't Repine, Daughter - Poem by John Sensele

Don't repine, daughter
Despite swarms of storms surging forth
To steal and slay the laughter
That shone in your life's growth

From a tender age
Caressed and comforted
In God's hand despite strange
Forces that felt had you discomforted

In the natural
Where their purview
Seemed impregnable although the supernatural
Scoffed at such a view

Which God couldn't bless
Regardless of sinister motives
Angels of envy chose to address
As God's omnipotence and omniscience rendered them unfit fugitives.
