This Christmas…Praise the Lord..

Days when I talk to no one
And people smile around me without compassion
I sigh, and even desire to cry; inwardly
I tell myself: there’s no point
The moon is silent, though I may address it
singing like a desperado in the summer ‘
But I don’t feel because I’ve told myself no
And it’s winter all over
But when the Lord comes, He finds me
Exactly where I am, with no pretensions
I whimper and sigh, the dark contractions
And my heart sings with joy and hope once more
So, what is life, if we don’t have Jesus?
Lonely days without number? Condemnation like a slave’s..
Emptiness that can never be felt; a heart cold
Yes, that was what life was like.
This Christmas, I thank You, Jesus,
For the many hearts you’ve touched, mine included
My emptiness healed, Your Life revealed
My shabby tears caught.
