Filler

Post by Tom Watson » Tue Dec 13, 2005 8:52 pm

For Shane, and those others who have known that emptiness inside

I walk this path in life
Knowing I am alive,
But the hollowness inside
Makes me think something has died...

What? You don't seem surprised...
You, too, feel something ran to hide?
From the recognition in glances I see,
This hollowness was born in everybody.

God's mercy made us whole on creation's days;
Our sin and disgrace took a piece away.
So now each of us has an empty space
That needs filling to bring us to our original place.

Some of us are fortunate, when young,
To feel this emptiness; unfinished song;
Because we start the search early to find
That part that was left behind.

And soon, we complete the seeking
As we hear our soul speaking;
And we answer by filling that hollowness,
A reserved spot for our Lord Jesus to rest.

Not very often a single word encompasses an entire poem. Filler goes beyond even that. Many more times will I have to re-visit this poem to glimpse its singular beauty. :bow: ---BeeJay

The title of this special poem can do much more than you intended to, it is a filler, spreading hope and a smile into my heart. Thanks. *angel

Thank you BeeJay. This "filler" is much richer and more delicious than any custard or whipcream, that is for certain... :lol:


Angeltears, thanks so much for visiting and leaving your teardrop of encouragement.
