Completely crushed, my fragile heart.
So lonely then, I fell apart.
My life was incomplete.
Of all the poems 'round the world,
this simple one, in wind, was twirled
and landed at my feet.
I'll live the life that God gave me
and do His will so free, gladly.
This life, I live for Him.
I took this poem at my feet,
inhaled the words without defeat,
then sang my fav'rite hymn.
For joy now fills my empty soul.
God simply touched and made me whole.
On knees, to Him I came.
I hold this poem that's so dear
and lift my hands without a fear
to praise His Holy Name.
This poem won first place for the October 2020 poetry contest
