Suffering with hope

He Will Carry Me Home – A Poem

He Will Carry Me Home

In moments of grief

Heart being shattered

He held me close

My body and mind battered.

*

Head in my hands

Heart feeling numb

Reached the end of myself

Where would my help come from?

*

The mountain looms before me

Hands and feet tied

An impossible feat

Yet he makes me tread on high.

*

Valleys follow

Dark, lonely, and long

Body and mind broken and weary

Yet spirit strangely strong.

*

Days turn to weeks

Months turn to years

Would the journey ever end

My pillow soaked with tears.

*

The world’s luster has dulled

Eyes fixed on but one goal

Persevere ’til the end

Emptied but full.

*

He’s carried me ’til now

He is able, and he alone

The road may be long

But he will carry me home.

*

~Sarah

  1. Love this. So thankful God has given you the gift of praising him through your writing. This poem is perfect for me presently. What a Hope we have to look forward to. This Hope quiets our souls in Him as we go through each day he gives us. Oh, victory in Jesus!
