Smile #15: SAVIOUR


This was written for Poets United's Poetry Pantry #268

When the world gets too crazy
and there's no one to talk to
I just go to the backyard
and think of you.

When the noise of the television
becomes too loud
and my mind is spinning around and around
I just go to the backyard
and gaze at the stars.

It's in the backyard
I am not too hard
on myself on myself

When the brain is too much
and my family's out of touch
I just go to the backyard
and look out for your star.

When there's a lot of hurt
that I become so disturbed
with my mind all alert
I just go to the backyard
and tend to my scars.

There I say a word
or two or four or more
to my listening Lord
to heal my wounds and sores

It's in this place
I can feel the embrace
of the one who loves me always.

And my tears turn to joy
And I no longer cry
And I begin to smile
And see through the night.

There you are Jesus...

  2. I love the idea of the special place and the special person both associated with each other. Except that the most special person happens to be God ;) There's something comforting about a backyard- it's that place you're never obliged to deck up. Therefore it's that place which is always just left to be.

  4. Actually a backyard could be more than a church.. could it be that you need to be by yourself to really find what you're searching in the stars?

  5. We all need to find a place where we can talk to God. Backyard seems logical to me.

    1. Hello Mary, thanks for understanding. I've been doing this backyard or bedroom thing for so long. I would meditate on something then lose myself into prayer usually to Jesus and the saints and Mary for absolution. Hehe.

  11. The good thing is that God is available
    no matter where we are - but like you
    I tend to find God more in natural settings
    when i am away from all the clutter
    that clamors for our attention.
