Beauty from Pain

Share to Strengthen

Moments of joy and life full of love

Drift and depart through my days

Washing over and receding in spin

Like the waves of the billowing sea

Departing and loss is painful and yet

The promise of life still returns

Surprised by joy with bloom in hand

Like a gentleman courting his bride

Riding the tide and awaiting return

Learning to breathe once again

Push into the freedom of letting it go

Knowing Your love will sustain

Lord help me and keep me

And use me for good

Turn ashes to beauty from pain.
