And the child grew up

With a car of her own

She has become a big girl now

With a little girl’s heart

Running and speeding, searching

For light

Sometimes with fear

When the darkness descends

Learning to accept it

When she doesn’t understand

That God was always there

She just couldn’t see

When the light was dim

In looking for Him

She needs to step back

And embrace this darkness

Not asking why

Learning to wait until it

Reveals what it has in mind

She is far too serious

Becoming oblivious to her


She will learn to dance

And sing

And to remember, the

Music composed, will lead

Her through life!

Poem adapted from my book
‘And The Child Grew Up’
