This work has reached the exceptional level
Forgiveness is waiting for all.
"The Sanctuary Lights" by papa55mike

sitting in a pew
simply waiting

hoping for a word
from God

my troubles are many
dashing hope

what must i do
for forgiveness

please, Lord
help my faith grow

with grace
heal my broken heart
with love

i mouth the songs
no passion

do i deserve forgiveness
joy flees

remembering my past failures
hurting all

God will never answer
someone wicked

please, Lord
help my faith grow

with grace
heal my broken heart
with love

many people have left
sitting alone

watching the sanctuary lights
radiating life

when a voice says
“my son”

“Grace will always forgive”
“with joy”

thanks, Lord
for helping my faith to grow

with grace
and healing my broken heart
with love


Author Notes
I wrote this poem with alternating lines of four words, then two words, except for the last verse. I know, this form only exists in my mind which makes it unique.

Forgiveness is the greatest gift ever given to us.

Many thanks for stopping by to read!
Have a great day and God bless.
