Lest I should fall
Zoe Jun 2015
These hands hang down
and my heart droops within;
these feet are tired - my back sags
shouldering so much,
visible and invisible.
Oh Lord, sustain me,
I pray!
Lend me
strength to
lest I should
fall and not

a word I dislike,
for he has left
and gone.
You made
a promise to me,
yet I'm all alone.
Oh God,
please help

Just thoughts.
A prayer.

Large moon,
emanating light
through the thin clouds,
and eerie shadows
cast all around.
yet all the while
Shining all
through the night.
Moon, so large,
rising over all.

A lovely moonlit night.
Hope you enjoy! :)

It is all gone
Zoe Nov 2014
Those days,
so long ago now,
that blossomed within
time that seemed to
stand still.
Now it is gone,
and I am
You are gone
as well.*

Missing people is painful...

Tomorrow may never come,
So, appreciate this day.
Today is waning so fast,
Soon night shall be descending.
All we have is this moment,
Tomorrow may never come.

Make the most of each moment.
Something I need to take to heart.

Studying in school
has kept me
so busy.
I haven't
been able to
write anything
new lately.
I hope

Things have been hectic.
School is nearly over now!
Hoping to write more.

Along the Pathway
Zoe Jan 2014
All along the pathway,
covered in snow and ice;
I walked alone, but I
found God was with me!

"...for he hath said, I will never leave thee nor forsake thee." Heb. 13:5
I tend to forget this sometimes.

And nothing like the last one,

I open my eyes
and see all of nature clear
I thank God for this!
I thank God for creating beauty in nature.

Lightning flashes and thunder peals.
The ground trembles beneath me,
In awe I watch on.

Friends Help
Zoe Jun 2013
The burdens are
difficult to carry
all alone.
With a friend
to help you tote
them, you're
not all
The burdens
are so much lighter
with a friend to help.
That's what
to help each other.

Summer Day
Zoe May 2013
It is so nice, the summer sun
warming up my garden
and my face.
Flowers bloom, as love, all
