Here But So Far Away


Tears stained her cheek

She was hurt 

Punished for sins not of her own 

She looked around lost 

She had left to serve The Lord 

She found joy and glad tidings 

Yet here she stood ready to be sent away

Wrong by ones so close that she still called friend

Her pain

Too real

I yearn to heal, hold and bring peace to her.

She is here but so far away

What could I do for one I love so dear. 

The thought comes to life bright and clear

Copper chains of a wonderful hues encircle me

I have carried strength upon my neck and back

I break it free and with pure joy adorn it around her neck, heart and soul.

With a smile I whisper “carry my strength with thee for as long as you need”

“Then one day set it yet again free”
