Somewhere

12 Mar

Our guest contributor, Louise Gibson shared “Somewhere” a poem she wrote after her huband’s death. Enjoy- Onisha

 

                     SOMEWHERE
Somewhere there is a place for me
A place I have a need to be.
A new  plateau, a goal to met
Purpose, direction without defeat.
Oh God, give me strength to greet each day
With a cheerful countenance.
Don’t let me sway.
Please let me focus on the issues of life
That bring joy to others
To relieve their strife.
To have victory over the enemy called fear
The energy and stamina to persevere.

    This is a lovely poem. I think about losing my husband sometimes, doesn’t everybody? It’s good to be encouraged and reminded that even when we are alone God is still uppermost in our lives. Thanks Louise.
