'Heart Of Peace I'M Searching For' - Poem by Linda Winchell

“Heart Of Peace I’m Searching For”

There is a, ” Heart of peace I am searching for”
To ease and take away this pain in which resides.
I try to place it all into words in poems.
But the pain seems, not too easily to subside.

The loss I feel is more than words can say
But I write them down somehow, anyway.
In hopes this will unburden from me
This pain that resides, from this loss, you see?

I pray to, ”You Oh God “, that I will soon not feel
What in my heart and that of others
Is now so real.

So young was he, to have been taken away
Why couldn’t, ”You my Lord”, just let him stay?
I know I should not question in Him
What I feel inside, to be my weakened doubt of sin.

Please forgive me Lord
but this pain I feel is real.
And it tugs at my joy
This sin now tries to steal.

I would ask one favor of You, ” My Lord”
That you give me, this” Heart of peace I’m looking for.”
And I will try, with all the Love I have in You
To not search for Your peace, you needn’t give no more.
