Waterfalls - Poem by Betania ...

Waterfalls

Tears fall without an end.
Alone here, with you,
with much time to spend.
Acquainted with sorrows,
I am one with You.
These waterfalls won't relent,
sitting here with You,
in the silence of my solitude.
I have been stripped of joy,
it's become a distant thing.
Hold on a little longer,
now it's bitter winter,
Soon hope will rise with spring.
I am a weary sojourner,
passing through,
in this world but not of it.
Somehow a part but still unfit.
Streams of waterfalls,
Still there's peace through the pain.
Don't you worry,
the sun will come out again, after the rain.
I want to save the world,
but I am just human.
Lacking resources,
these bare hands of a woman.
So I retreat and pull away,
to the secret hiding place.
In Your presence,
in prayer, is where I dwell,
and long to stay.
Somehow, in my frailty,
You still hear,
and don't fail to answer, to my call.
Your hand is not short that it can't save,
neither is Your ear heavy that it can't hear.
Even if I am a woman and may be so small.
So much wisdom gained in suffering.
Still, through my pierced heart,
You remain my loving, covering.
It's in this pain and sorrow,
that I come to understand,
how fickle life can be,
today we flourish like flowers,
tomorrow we perish like sinking sand.
So help me through these waterfalls,
to comprehend Your plan,
through tears shed for me and for others,
Lead me, through valleys and mountains,
Over yonder to Your promised land.
Let me see the fruits of my labor,
Please don't let my tears be in vain.
For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
Tears fall without an end,
Alone here, with You,
with much time to spend.
Acquainted with sorrows,
I am one with You,
These waterfalls won't relent,
sitting here with You,
in the silence of my solitude.
These waterfalls falling,
the weeping and gasping cries,
of a wounded heart,
like the sounds of many waters,
thunder and lightnings, in magnitude.
