The Lord - Poem by Sylvia Frances Chan

composed especially for Deb Joseph in her lonely moments,
God Bless You always!

The Lord
no blame you need God most when
your thoughts are in no wits
no blame you'll always want to talk to Him then
you can't converse with three little kids

you forgot one thing, my dear
God is there for you so clear
Just call Him by His name sure He'll be listening
you'll be strong again your heart will keep singing

of course, I can talk so easily
I take no part, so sorry
in your sorrow
today or tomorrow

for Debs, thinking of her lonely moments

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Deb lost her spouse all of a sudden. We oft say: It is God's will. But WHY did He take Deb's spouse while the kids were so very young. God had His own reason to call her spouse to go home in Heaven. But for ys human beings is such a problem to understand. We believe in the Lord, we are His loyal servants, but in me rose also the question WHY? I know that God has other plans for her and her kids. We must never question God, we must accept this tragedy and so did deb too. God had stayed with her and the kids through all the years. He is the One who has helped her in all kind of situations. The kids have become teens and a young man and Deb has become an independent author and poetess and she is still working in a company. Today I have updated this real story poem. Thank you for reading. Deb is very proud of her kids who have become so big and they hope to study soon. Thank you dear God that You are always with Deb and the children. Amen.
