Love and Shadows | Short Poem No. 41

This poem is about Love and Shadows

I hide in my music – sometimes my only friend.

I hide in my poems because You gave me this pen.

I close my eyes and I drift away

to a place other than today.

I know that You love me, it’s clear in your words.

but when I don’t feel You, darn, it hurts.

Sometimes I’m alone; I cry by myself.

But when You were alone You felt what I felt.

Love and Shadows

I hide in the shadows; I hide under Your wings.

I hide when I’m thinking too much about things.

Sometimes I break down, but I know You still love me.

You’ll never leave me, and that’s what consoles me.

Take away the way I do feel today.

Take away the way I do feel always.

Take away the way I do. . . I pray,

Take away the way. . . take it all away.

“Keep me as the apple of Your eye; hide me in the shadow of Your wings.” Psalm 17:8.
