Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 In the Night
Sometimes I have trouble sleeping
The next day my eyes are drooping
It is hard to concentrate and stay awake
Sleep is essential for my health's sake

My body is used to staying up later
Now that I am going to bed earlier
With persistence, it will work out
Patience is the key, without a doubt

Other times I have strange dreams
Then I wonder what all of that means
Some I remember clearly the next day
Am I trapped in my past in some way?

Especially when they are about my parents
So real and like their spirits are transparent
Events that do not make any sense at all to me
Like my dad remarrying; he died first you see

I bring all my cares before You, precious Lord
I know You will strengthen me from Your Word
Even using a friend to share verses from Psalms
Then words of a song, helps my soul to stay calm

Psalm 32:7 (NIV)
You are my hiding place; you will protect me from
trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.
