From Isaiah 49:13: “Sing for joy, O heavens, and exult, O earth; break forth, O mountains, into singing! For the Lord has comforted His people, and will have compassion on His suffering ones.”
Does anyone truly feel my pain tonight?
Feeling run over, with nothing to gain
Nightly tears and torment, dark dreams take flight
Who can reach out with love to ease this pain?
Feeling without life, bleak and cold numbness
A distant, yet strong voice comes close to thee
Light creeps over the horizon’s darkness
Listen! Hear His voice, kneeling on my knees
God’s Holy Word soothes agonizing pain
Turning to listen, He’s never been gone
Leaving oneself with so much love to gain
Now praising my Lord, life hums a new song
My Lord, my God—His mercy comforts thee
Lasting hope, opens eyes forever to see
This poem was inspired by a few of the lyrics from the song “Comfortably Numb” by Pink Floyd. A fellow blogger shared this song, and my poetic craft found a way to bring some of the song into this Christian poem. God inspires!
