FROZEN

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.
