In The Garden - Poem by Louise Dean

Tired and worn from life's many test,
I walked into the garden today,
With my head bowed on my chest,
I dropped to my knees and begin to pray,
I talked to God the best I knew how,
And spoke of just throwing in the towel,
For life was too much for me to bare,
Especially when it seems there's no one to care,
For what is life that's filled with a broken heart,
That, from me, seems never to part,
Suddenly, there was a rustling sound in my ear,
So I turned to see the noise I hear,
I saw a beautiful rose in full bloom,
It shattered all my gloom,
I no longer feel all alone,
And my broken heart is gone,
For He wrapped me in His loving grace,
Now in life, when I feel I can go no longer,
I slip off into my secrets praying place,
In the garden where He makes me stronger.
