Assurance

In the quietness when

you dream

I speak my Words

of hope.

Your deep prayers fill

My Heart.

Your life struggles are in

My Hands.

The warmth of your tears

touch Me.

Child,

My Strength is your strength,

beloved one.

My Arms of Love present in

your friends.

This poem emerged after I offered a prayer for a dear friend who deals with significant challenges daily yet lives with such grace and vibrancy as to be an inspiration to me.  These words are a response, THE response, which I believe God provides to each of us as we pray for others and ourselves at times of need, the gift of assurance, the gift of friends.

Blessings, Ram
