God's Touch

I lay upon the ground, pouring tears into soil,
weak, alone and destroyed by the turmoil,
the pain that has become my everyday
my soul slowly drowns in sorrow as I lay
Though I want to stand, be proud and survive
my body won’t move and my heart is deprived
of the love it needed in order to thrive
my breath still comes, therefore I am alive
but if I’m not dead, this must be what it’s like to die
I’m paralyzed and want to scream for aide
My mouth says “help”, though no word was made
my voice is weak and no one is around
no one to hear me calling, as I die upon the ground
no one to save me from unavoidable fate
only God to take me by the hand and guide me to the gate
as He reaches down and lifts me to my feet
I’m ready to go with Him, take me from this heat
but instead he lifts my chin and I look into the sky
there is no face, only his hand and the urge to cry
without words new feelings start to flood
I’m suddenly no longer alone, I think this is “being loved”
people I didn’t see before are there, crying with me in the rain
sent by God to help, but I was blinded by the pain
I take their hand and they hold my tattered soul near
this was a lesson learned, and God must’ve wanted me here
to see the whole time I thought I walked continuously alone
God had sent me love on my walk, I just needed to be shown
