Lord, It's Okay

Lord hear me say

that I think it's okay

if things don't work out

in the usual way

I know where I'm going

and I love yesterday

and though it stands sadly

like a sad cabaret

a new day is waiting

for a fresh new bouquet

a scent gently sweeter

than a love-worn sachet

and though this farewell

is to my dismay

the tears have to wait

Lord, no tears today.


Lord hear me say

that I think it's okay

if loving is lost

like the rain down the drain

a tattered ballerina

with a broken plié

or the fiercest knight

who has lost his touché

all that we live for

is dragging away

but hold back the tears

they'll be no tears today.


Lord hear me say

that I think it's okay

if hearts fall in pieces

and pain comes to stay

I knew we were sewing

the seeds of our shame

and all along knowing

the wisdom we've gained

but through the illusions

one fact will remain

please stifle my tears

they'll be no tears today.


Lord hear me say

that I think it's okay

if confusion set's in

and changes my way

your path is my road

the one expressway

my shoes they are dusty

and I've nothing to pay

my heart it is shattered

like the paper maché

those tears swelling strongly

and my soul is a flame

but Lord, how I trust you

I believe what you say

so hold back these tears

they'll be no tears today.

      Thanks for the reminder of what is most important, God has met our needs, continue to meet our needs and must trust Him with our life. No matter what comes our way, we must trust Him. This is a beautiful poem.

      One of the most beautiful and elequent poems i have ever read Kristi!

      Everything is optional,and every option holds a promise, and in every promise there's a plan for the "best of your life."

      So, whatever you chose, or may yet choose, celebrate it.

      Even not choosing,is choosing, and this too deserves celebrating...
