It’s so special to be loved

By family and friends,

And to have sincere relationships

Where integrity doesn’t end.

But unfortunately in life

Things may not go our way,

When circumstances change abruptly

And where memories remain.

Our best friend may betray us

And slander us indeed,

When the seed of envy grasps the heart

And lies the heart it feeds.

Our spouse may suddenly die

And so unexpectedly,

Where all our hopes and all our dreams

Are just a memory.

Our siblings may move on

To a country far away…

And that dependency we once had

In our heart will now remain.

Although our parents age gracefully

They’re restricted in all they do,

And they will now depend on us

And to be a blessing too.

Ultimately only God

Can fill that void within…

Since He’ll never leave us nor forsake us

And understands the pain we’re in.

He will send the right people

When we have a desperate need,

He protects and orphan and the widow

And the hungry mouth He feeds.

Let’s not be afraid of trials

Since once we’ve overcome,

We have authority to speak and act

To be a blessing to someone.

Our dependency should be on God

As He’s the provider of our life,

And every good thing for us to enjoy

Our Creator is such a delight!
