Psalm 34:18 (ESV)

“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.”

Frozen ground is harsh terrain

Its icy blasts chill the soul

Crying for a love lost

It searches for warm sunlight


Travelling down the ages

Along tangled paths

It shies away beyond the edge

Where loneliness lives


Quietness fills this border

Far from worldly noise

It is a place to rest

In Heavenly poise


But a soul can not live

Past this margin for long

It must search out

And find its lover’s song


Now in some other place

Wandering in haunted towns

And city streets

Looking for what vanished


Through careless love.
