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
And 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.

Denise~
This is just lovely.

'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!'

Lovely, indeed my friend.

...hehehe...I need a few slaps myself on a regular basis....hehehe....I'm glad you found this inspiring! This is a poem from among the first set of poems that I wrote and it came out of a very dark period for me.  Writing this helped me to turn a corner and move on with my life. It remains one of my favorite ones.
