Lost - Poem by Shelby Lanier

Lost in thought
Lost in pain
Lost in fear
That you can never retain

Lost trouble
Lost in grief
Lost in heartbreak
That you can never relief

Lost in sorrow
Lost in death
Lost in misery
That you can never refresh

Lost in life
Lost in words
Lost in everything
That you can never return

Lost in chaos
Lost in peace
Lost in burdens
That you can ever release

Because these are the things
We think and feel
Through the good and the bad
It’s a forever a done deal!
