I Will Not Dwell

Pick A Love!
“I will not dwell on the
unpleasant things of life.
O God, Thou art more friend
to me than I am to myself.”

Some days I only feel the pain.
A black emptiness fills my heart.
I cannot stand alone.

I feel the truth now.
A word or a touch says “I care.”

I lift my eyes when I recognize their love.
