Prayer for Myself

by Amy Niggel

Today my heart is heavy,
and I've no help to lift it up,
and my eyes are slowly leaking,
Still I trust that I am loved.
I seek comfort in new places
and wisdom in their eyes
and I look to God above
as His is truth that withstands time.
For what I cannot fix
Between the hearts of men
if I trust in His words
may yet be right again.
So I turn away in sorrow
and trust that God still cares
and hope that one day yet I may
turn to find you there.


Author's Note: A follow up to the poem Prayer for a Friend that was written at the very beginning of a friendship that now is slowly drawing to a close.

I can't form words for this... yet I know this is beautiful.

having known both the swift and sudden dissolution of friendships as well as the slow, puzzling fraying of many more over time, I can relate to this poem on several levels, Amy
