You've kept the Faith, though times were hard
Indeed, the ways are still rough.
You've trusted God who leads your life,
For you He's been enough.

My joy still shines upon your face
Though inside I am crying;
The gentle baby inside you sees your trust
And those tears you are hiding.

Pour out your heart - Tell all to me..
That's what I'm waiting for.
Ask any question and state your case;
I've opened a wide door.

Go boldly to the throne of Grace,
We're told to in His word..
Then hear me whisper in your heart,
The sweetest words you've ever heard.

I'll carry you, dear friend of mine,
You've trusted me and waited.
Close tight his robe, I'll see you through
You've kept the Faith in everything you do...

For Brittany
from Krystal

Krystal~
You speak with the love
that a friend needs to hear.
Wonderful, my dear.
Just wonderful.

Such sweet words of friendship and love
Such friendships we have seldom off
Written so lovely and well in style
I read it twice just to remian here for a while
One line perhaps belongs to you
"You've kept the Faith in everything you do..."
What a poem and what an ending, bravo.



 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
