Yesterday the pain
Wouldn’t leave me
Testing my strength
Leaving me weak.

I wept in sorrow
As I lay my head
Down on my pillow
I can’t take anymore.

In the darkness
I look up at the heavens
“Help me Lord Jesus.
Take away this pain.”

In the corner
I saw shimmer
A ray of gold
“You are here.”

“I hear your cries
I want you to listen
Have faith in me
Leave yesterday behind.”

My heavy heart lightened
My spirit laid to rest
Sleep came upon me
Peace entered my soul.

This morning I promise
I will awake with hope
A prayer to God
I will believe in you.

For whatever
Time I have left
I will carry hope
Within myself.
