This month is National Poetry Month. I used to write poetry in High School. They were a little dark, but it was my way of expressing how I was feeling. So in Honor of National Poetry Month, you will see a few more poems in my posts. Writers Digest has a challenge going on to write one poem a day for the month of April, so that’s what I have been doing. Every now and then when I’m feeling brave, I will share them here.
The following poem is for anyone who has ever felt distant from God. We could search for so many other things, but truly, only His love satisfies. And all you have to do is call out to Him- He is waiting with open arms. We go through times where it’s so quiet, you wonder where God is. He is here.
Jeremiah 29:13- You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
Come Back to Me
I’m reaching out
Or can’t you hear?
I’m calling through the stratosphere
Day after day after day
I feel as if we are further away
But I’m desperate for one more dance
Look my way
See my glance
My heart is heavy almost cold
And I need to feel the love you hold
I cry out
But do you not see?
Every ember that was once in me
The fire was there
Your love was sought
But now icicles grow where you are not
Return to me
For I cannot bear
One more day without you there
For you are faithful
When I am not
And it’s for your tenderness
That I have fought
I will not give up
I will not give in
For it is your love that covers my sin
Come back to me
And me to you
For this is the only love that will ever do
