“Betrayal”

A dark and ominous cloud surrounds
     
and attempts to shut out the sun.
The joy and warmth of a heart of love
     
shines on. The darkness has not won.

A wavering deep within the soul
     
questions .. Was I wrong? Did I stray?
Why would this wound me so?
     
I ponder and I pray.

My God of love is always there
     
and He guides me through each day.
When I weaken and begin to question “why”.
    
He says, “my child, pray”.

For I will give you all you need
     
to “weather” such a storm.
Have faith in what you know is true.
     
My steadfast love transforms
