In A Moment Of Prayer - Poem by Daleen Enslinstrydom

while the sun sets
through the bareness of the winter trees
I take your hands in mine
for comfort and a little bit of warmth.

When the colours spectacularly break
and the sky looks as if it has been lit from inside
it’s a beautiful sight to behold
and at that moment
you pull me into your sheltering arms

and I bow my head
to say a prayer to the Lord
and I thank Him for this day
as it was good
and I thank Him for tomorrow,
although tomorrow is still wrapped
in the promises that are to come.

One thing that I am certain of
is that all my days are counted
and in His wisdom
He holds back
the knowledge of things that is to come.

When I open my eyes
there are tears in yours
and at that moment
I do love you even more.

Your explanation to the tears
are that you saw me talking to the Lord
and that they are tears of happiness.

While the sun disappears
you hold me closer to you
and I know that although
we are in our winter-years
we will find comfort in each other
and God will lead the way.
