the wound is small, but the pain is deep,
and I am left hurting in the dark.
I put faith in empty words and temporary feelings,
and when the winds blew,
I did not stand a chance.
but you, O Father of the broken-hearted, know how it feels to be abandoned by those You cared most about.
help me to carry my burden the same way you did- breathe into me the same perseverance and trust You had.
