A Single Hour to My Life


As I lie here,

Eyes wide open,

Troubles come,

A devil’s token.

My mind rushes

revisiting the day,

Going over everything

As I pray….


Questioning worries

Consume my mind

How do I leave

This chaos behind?

My thoughts wander

My focus lost,

Whispers to God

Hushed at what cost.

Too much thinking

Has stolen my sleep

Prayers forgotten

As I silently weep.


Then like a memo

Taped into my brain

Jesus’ voice

Lessens my pain.

Who of you by worrying,

can add a single hour to his life?" 


as I slip into dreams

These are yours, God.

Good night.

About the Poet
I am a Christan mother, grandmother, wife, aspiring poet, and owner of a bed and breakfast with my husband of 37 years. I love to create an ambience of serenity in my home. I love soft music, the sounds of the birds in my yard, the whir of the ceiling fans,... Time has passed since the first time I wrote my Poet Bio...it has been three years now....in that time my life has changed drastically. We lost our beloved youngest child, our only son, to suicide. It has been devastating...shaking my faith to its core but not destroying it. I have not been inspired to write for quite some time now. I pray that I will be able to emerge from this pain and write with a new passion about my journey. Until that time I ask for prayers and that God will continue to speak to me and give me the peace that passes all understanding.
