This poem is about Love and Shadows
I hide in my music – sometimes my only friend.
I hide in my poems because You gave me this pen.
I close my eyes and I drift away
to a place other than today.
I know that You love me, it’s clear in your words.
but when I don’t feel You, darn, it hurts.
Sometimes I’m alone; I cry by myself.
But when You were alone You felt what I felt.
I hide in the shadows; I hide under Your wings.
I hide when I’m thinking too much about things.
Sometimes I break down, but I know You still love me.
You’ll never leave me, and that’s what consoles me.
Take away the way I do feel today.
Take away the way I do feel always.
Take away the way I do. . . I pray,
Take away the way. . . take it all away.
“Keep me as the apple of Your eye; hide me in the shadow of Your wings.” Psalm 17:8.
