Stubborn Memories

 

When you left

I cried

 

You travelled far away

And married another

I cried

 

I grieved

And prayed

That you would come back

If not for me

For my children

 

When you left

I cried

 

I could not let go

I lived in the past

And tormented my weary mind

With the beautiful and stubborn

Memories we had formed

Together in the past

 

You left

But the memories did not leave

 

I tried to shake them off

But they remained

 

I tried to let go

But I couldn’t

Until grace found me

And changed me

 

Power from above

And time

Healed me

 

Today

I am so happy

It’s unbelievable

 

I have found another love

Another joy

And another life

 

I cried

But

I cry no more

 

There are times

And seasons in life

 

I guess my season

Of sadness is over

And my season of joy is now

 

Lord

May it last

By your grace

Till I meet you in glory

Message

God heals broken hearts

No matter how gloomy it is

After a bitter and harsh separation

God’s grace is bigger

He heals hearts, emotions, homes and families
