A Plan of God

Awakened she on bed of steel
And none to tell her if it real
For there she be and there she lay
For more than just forever's day

And not to eat and not to sip
And not a word come from her lip
And none to rise her from the bed
She laid in blood beneath her head

Not bothered she by hunger pain
Nor force of wind nor pouring rain
But only want to take away
The sight of wound in light of day

Then rose she up in trembling weak
Unabled step a step to seek
Then sought she slow the water's hole
To cleanse her wounds and cleanse her soul

One foot upon the tile of clay
Removed her gown in light of day
The cold on foot took breath away
And fell the child and there she lay

And naked truth then watched the lone
The naked child on bed of stone
In unpredicted silent way
A darkness came in light of day

She laid alone on marbled floor
While life blood from her wounds did pour
And death came round this child to find
But God had not this plan in mind

For he would see her in the light
In place of winter's snowy white
And there she sits forever more
A soul arose from marbled floor

Elizabeth,
More than a touch of sadness
I must confess.
But then I could say no less.
Well done.

A plan of God but not of me
A plan to set the spirit free
In peacefulness the spirit fills
Pennsylvania's lovely hills
And wonders at the wonderment
Of feathered bird from heaven sent
And questions not the marble floor
And lives in peace forevermore

Dear Elizabeth,
Your tone and rhyme worries me.
For between the lines I see,
A black bird calling off and cold,
A black bird sounding much too bold.
I would the true no misconstrue,
For I really do care for you. Sy

The voice of pain
It echos clear
In the words
That you've wrote here
My heart goes out
In desperate plea
To take the hurt
And pain from thee
Elizabeth,
Just take my hand
As friends together
We will stand
Against the odds
The hurt, the pain
Till you can stand
Alone again

Elizabeth, my heart longs to heal your pain, take from you this sadness. Please dear, if there is anything I can do, do not hesitate to let me know. My thoughts and my prayers are with you.
Hugs
Ruth
