My submission for this week is below.
Until He Comes For Me
Alone and lonely, it seems my lot these days
Always empty, always afraid.
Ever aware of God's goodness and grace
Never too far from His shining face.
How can it be that my life is thus;
I never planned for this curse.
Where did I overlook this part of life;
How could I have known I would no longer be his wife?
It seemed I was prepared for all to come,
I spent months praying and learning from some.
Yet nothing could have helped me understand
How lost I would feel when he last touched my hand.
My head knows he's better to be with our Lord,
But my heart doesn't yet feel the same accord.
I know it will all come to me as days progress;
I'll once again be able to feel happiness.
For now I'm lonely, and thus it seems
This is my life, the end of my dreams.
I wait for Jesus and long for His face to see,
For with He and my husband is where I long be.
So I will live while the time prolongs
Until Jesus comes to take me home.
I'll choose happiness and content to be,
Serving my Lord until He comes for me.
