The day was gloomy,
My heart, distraught;
It seems that’s the norm,
like it, or not.
Every smile is a frown,
No matter how pleasant;
The world’s upside-down,
An unpleasant fragrance.
I step outside to walk around,
From one place to another;
The sun hits me, hot and round;
I look up in awestruck wonder.
A sky of ocean blue,
The paths of snowy white;
My thoughts have been subdued,
And doom doth run in fright.
Though my heart is hurting,
My thoughts, all a mess;
God is faithful, never-changing,
Every day He does bless.
Look up when your heart is down,
Find the path of light;
Jesus Christ will, low, bend down,
Take your hand, and lead you right.
Our failures will always disappoint,
Every blunder, goof-up, and mistake;
We make them often, fall down hard,
That’s when, Christ’s hand, we take.
As I look at the clouds in the air,
The beautiful, brilliant sunshine;
I realize God made a path for me there,
To wander in the sky.
