MY TATTERED WINGS




  
  




MY TATTERED WINGS

By the window I sit watching
cars  move slowly down the street
My life is moving in slow motion
I am like a drop of water in a large ocean

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A snail moves at a faster pace than I
Could he and that frog in the pond run a race
Why do I feel so incomplete
Since our last embrace

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My heart longs for you my sweet
If only once more your dear face I could greet
I know that we again will meet
Till that day into my small world I retreat

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Yesterday's work has now taken a back seat
morose replaces joy - what a defeat
Children walk down the street laughing and talking
Life goes on - the sun shines - the birds sing

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Wind causes the leaves to whirl
I wish my tattered wings I could unfurl
Someday the snail will fly  -  as the frog dances a jig
For now here by the window I sit watching the cars go by

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is only for today
I bow my head and to my Saviour I pray
Peace He give me from on high
His soothing balm to my heart He does apply
