She gives of herself in total, selfless fashion. Never giving in
to the wild abandon
that pulses within her heart.

Heart and soul, given to God, trusting in Him to bring unto her
the love and care
she has faith, will always be there.

Swallowed at times by the pain she carries hidden deep inside,
her faith in the Lord
carried her through as her spirit soared.

Lost in darkness then abandoned by herself and those who she thought were friends,
God though, forgave her all of her sins.

She found the strength to crawl out of the pit she had fallen in,
only to find no trace
of God's infinite mercy, love and grace.

Feeling dejected, forgotten by God, and hollow from the wages of sin, she still has hope
that someone will help her to cope.

So she kept her faith and endured a terribly lonely sacrifice to awaken one day and find
the Lord had never truly, left her behind.

Dream, this is absolutely a wonderful tribute to a fine gal! She is lucky to have you in her life!

Really love this one. Truly significant message expressed...through the darkness, there remains a glimmer of light, dim but
not forgotten. Thanks for sharing this.

A bit bulky but it says what I feel and what I know quite well. Thank you everyone. Gentle Soul, little sister, especially thank you.
