have you ever laid in bed
struggling to make your eyelids meet
but you stare at the white roof and wonder
how can I shed this heavy burden
is it really worth it?
is this really God’s plan?
will the love of my life ever lay next to me?
how can I lift the roof off and touch the sky?
I have ….
loads of times
I lay in my bed many nights
sometimes I try to pray
sometimes I pray
so the thoughts can fade
sometimes I succeed
sometimes I doze off
but today; just before dawn
for the first time it dawned on me
some people go to sleep at night
and as they lay their backs
they have a beautiful view of the sky
only cos they have no roof over their heads
they wish they had my duvet
they wish the concrete was as soft as my vitafoam
they wish the bench was as wide as my single bed
so worry not
everything will work out fine
*I learnt a song last week:
“to know that You love me and know that I love You therefore everything will be OK; I open my heart”
