Feeling Raw


Wordz2Go

Lost in a sea of detachment,
Waves running high around,
Day runs into day,
With fears of running aground.
Time is lost in the telling,
Grief has gripped my soul,
I know you’re safe
Through God’s good grace
But it’s hard to let you go.

Guilt pulls at the anchor,
Threatens to sink the ship,
Your time was clearly close
And yet you died alone.
You slipped away so quietly,
Left us all in shock,
You went home to heaven,
My ship was on the rocks.
Sinking nearly inevitable,
Clinging tight through the ride,
My God has walked beside me,
Carried me through the tide.

Back in shallow water,
Still shifting sand beneath my feet,
Grateful that the anchor held –
The storm is near complete.
In calmer seas of nine months on
You’ve birthed me once again
Your love has made me stronger
And I know I can sail…
