Shelter me in the cradle of angel's wings
For the earth holds no comfort that human's can bring
I am lost in these waves of greivious despair
Alone and hopes lost, clinging to 'unanswered' prayers
I have exhausted my reservoirs of faith and strength
Flailing in the undertow of insanity's delay
My deafened spirit roars with heartache
I cry in the night, everything is not okay
How long, my Lord
How long will you withold
The comfort and healing from my broken soul
Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light. -Helen Keller

Dear Dawn,

Im not sure if you've read the words by Albert Camus -

"In the depth of winter, I finally learned that there lay within in me, an invincible summer."

I sense the bright dawn shining inside you. May it burn the darkness away.

With love,

Maithri

Thank you for feeling with me. It helps so much. Thank you, Mahitri for the prayer, I feel my soul trying to return into the light a little more each day. I feel the truth in the Albert Camus qoute and pray that the invincible summer surface in my life, that I may once more feel as the overcomer that I am.

Dear Dawn,

Remember that within you are good and whole, always, no matter what you have experienced nor what you have been told.

Love,

Christine

clinging to 'unanswered' prayers
Unanswered ... is actually so filled with Hope and I am glad you are clinging there Melissa! Even your forum name * dawn* is full of hope! Unanswered means that answers are being expected... waited for, entrusted to arrive! Just as dawn can seem to take 3 nights in one to awaken.... no one can stop the sun from rising and brightening the day. Where clouds mock in minimal power to stop it from shining... the sun burns them away and reveals all that needs to be seen, nurtured with warmth, light and growth and enhanced with fulfillment of a new day!

Love and Hope

Thank you so much Christine and Lion. I knew this was a place I could receive spiritual refreshment, I have been one of the "silent ones" as the poem says. I have found much encouragement and undaunted love on this site. Good to "be" here.

This is so true and something I need remember and be reminded of .

The words spoken here reach right into my soul, sometimes it seems as if God is speaking directly to me administering the healing balm through His people and their love/ understanding of others.

Thank you, Mahitri,Christine, and Lion...so much.
