Letter To God - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

God you are the creator, of after and before
Often I cry my eyes out sore
With tears rolling to the floor
Where is your door? Where is your door?
That I may knock on

God, I recognize my weakness
Ample times, I've asked your forgiveness
The joyful simple things
Love and Life brings
Have not sung my way
God, I still wait patiently as you say

God, this is your letter
Perhaps life will get better
When you read this or perhaps wetter

Each day I try to do right, always putting up a fight
Still in this life's darkness, I have not found the light
As you watch me below, hope continues to grow
Faith in you still flows, because I know
My God is great

The countless blessings
You have showered upon we
Like the air we breathe for free
The eyes of vision we use to see
The taste of pure water without a fee
Anything else can come late, I'll wait
Because I know my God is great
