The sadness lingers
like a gloomy day
with dreary forlorn skies,
and melancholy tones.
The girl’s heart is burdened
with her financial woes,
endless car saga,
and rejection wounds
that blister over
and refuse to heal
in spite of the girl’s best efforts
and repeated prayers to the Lord.
Some of the girl’s wounds run deep
and her wounded heart
needs to find
full peace and healing
in order to not end up jaded
and to not give up
on romantic love or faithful friends.
Sadness adorns the girl’s heart
with the recent loss of her Grandpa,
and at times finding the words seemed hard.
She wishes that her family was not so fragmented.
The girl longs for sweet and tender cohesion in her family,
and she desires to eventually be blessed with
a marriage that will withstand all trials and tribulations.
The sadness unmercilessly etches
the girl’s heart
when she thinks of Boston
and the recent tragedy there
at the Marathon
where a horrific scene,
loss of life and limb,
and the foundation of security was
Shaken to the core
in her country yet again.
The girl longs for the sweet touch of peace
by the hand of her God
and for a ray of sunshine
to illuminate the darkness.
She seeks an end to the storm
and to find the relaxing safe pastures
that she loves to read about
in one of her favorite Psalms.
