Do you wake up in the middle of the night,
Expecting to hear  His voice  call  for you
to get up and follow where He leads you.
But hearing nothing, you return to sleep in sadness.

Morning comes, yet nowhere is He beside you
nor does He sit on your doorsteps,
or outside in the garden, so you can hold His hand
to guide you through the pathways of your life.

Disappointed, you cover your eyes to hold back the tears.
You search the crowd in the streets looking for Him,
you feel  an emptiness wandering aimlessly.
He does not show His face to comfort you.

But stop; are you looking for Him in unfamiliar places?
Are you  listening to the right sound of His voice?
You need not see Him to know He is there –
You need not touch Him to feel His loving care.

You only have to look up to a clear blue sky,
listen to the soothing waves rock the shore,
turn your face to the sun to warm you,
let the tiny drops of rain refresh you.

He is there – walking with you, matching your footsteps,
whispering to you as a gentle breeze wafts by.
You see His face in the upturned smile of a child,
His presence fills the vast expanse of the universe.

God’s touch is in all good things.
the promise of a rainbow after a storm,
the dawning of a new day after night sheds its gloom..
Believe that He will be with you, as He has promised.

One, filled with doubt, who looks for God will seldom find Him, while those alrady believeing they'll find Him, will see Him in everything, so true!  I liked this.

If one is lacking in faith,
yet one keeps seeking;

If one is weak in spirit,
yet one keeps praying;

If on is broken-hearted,
yet one keeps hoping;

He appears invisible
to open our hearts and eyes.

Thank You for your lovely poem.
It was beautiful.

Dear Josefina,

it's a while since you came the last time to the blue pages and as I found your loving comment on my poem today, I went searching for you in your library and found this fantastic poem. Please come to stay and share your beautiful poetry with us again.

Love and peace.
Margherita

Thanks Margherita for reposting this.  I was thinking of visiting this forum, although I posted 1 at Dark Poetry and I think 2 at Open Poetry.

Hope to write. here too one of these days. just looking for inspiration yet. Your words though are inspiring me too.
