I gaze out on the misty sea
And wonder if I'll ever be
Set free from all this pain I feel
These waves of sadness, chains of steel.

I feel the gray clouds in the sky
Press down upon my heart, I cry,
"Oh, why can't I just see the sun?
My strength is gone...my soul's undone."

I took my grievance to the Lord
My heart, my soul, in one accord,
"When shall this end...this agony?
My world's in such disharmony."

He gently took me by the hand
And set my feet on higher land
He touched my eyes so I could see
His purpose through eternity...

"Although this world will break your heart
My loving grace I will impart
So you can see beyond the deed
To look inside, to see the need."

"And ev'rything in life, you see,
That touches you - must pass through Me
And though you struggle with such pain
I'll work it all for your own gain!"

I gaze out on the misty sea
His waves of kindness cover me
He set my feet on higher land;
He rescued me from sinking sand!

Thank you WhtDove! It's great to be back online. Wow, what happened last night? I just thought it was my system again. I was quite surprised to find out that it wasn't.

I also want to thank you and everybody else for all the kind comments on my previous postings. I tried to last night, but...!

thanks again!

Denise...this is absolutely one of the most beautiful postings I have seen. This entire thing works so well together....everything, from the theme to the form, the rythym to the rhyme......all of it works well together to creat a masterful piece. Very well done!!!

Another beautiful piece of poetry pushed to the back so that none will see.

Back to the top so that all might have another look at it.

Beautiful!

Denise, this is a real masterpiece...should be a publisher's delight as well.

Thank you Starith, Pepper and caroline for reading and commenting. Unfortunately, none of the publishers that I've sent any of my work to were interested. But, as I understand it, that's not an uncommon problem with poets! Thanks again for all the kind comments.

You write so beautifully. I loved the part
where you said all things in this life must
pass through Him. This one needs to stay on top. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! (How come I missed this earlier?)duh!!

Thank you all, Billy, Sue and Julie. And Julie, knowing that all things in this life (the good and the bad) must first pass through Him has helped me get through some tough times. Thanks again, everyone for reading and commenting and enjoying!
