poem ~ keep the vision

Dear Child,
I showed you what life was
for 33 years,
And that even I had
moments in tears.

I walked through the hills
and along the same road
all alone in the dark,
Taking time to pray
for everything on my heart.

I stuck up for truth
and got up each day
and fought my way through the crowds,
Even when they wanted
to take me away.

I kept sharing the message
given to me each day
no matter the outcome,
Even when my circle
denied me somehow.

I kept on my mission
knowing the Father's vision
to have hope in every season,
Yet in the midst of it all
I had to answer the call.

Every day I would spread love
and a reason for hope
healing those that had faith,
And leaving those
that thought it was a joke.

It won't be any different
in life for you
as you travel this road too,
So stay encouraged and press on again
knowing I'll be with you until the end.
