October 1985

 

To God, In Thanks for Friends

 

seemingly uncaring

the world ambles by

preoccupied in destiny

golden achievements

just around the bend

it trips me up

knocks me flat

stomps me down

all but kicking sand

as it passes

 

gloom

far too heavy to lift

fears me further

down

prayer is tried

and doesn't work

for days and even weeks

till alone

a voice is heard

distant though it be

it praises God

and so must I

and so return to life

 

since the life line

I could not grasp

God  came down

and kindly helped

thank you Lord (God)

for your angels

 


 

In thanks for one pohone call from

Annett VanderMolen, who praised

our God and so cheered me up
