The Shadow Falls

What do you say,
What do you do,
When the words you speak
Come slamming back at you?

What can you do
With the feelings you feel
When understanding is lax
In the spinning of wheels.

How do I face the day
When the tears run deep
From a love that was strong
Now makes me feel weak.

A turn of a minute
Flows into an hour
No matter what’s said
There is loss of all power.

I can pray, I can plead
With a God who sees all
Now I must patiently wait
For this shadow to fall.

Written by my feelings,
