Poem Inspired on 24 June 2019. On train in between appts. Completed 4 Feb 2021 0844hrs Crossing. that stream.The stones were sharp and tough.Against my feet I felt themHer words surprisingly harsh.The pain in the cut intensify with waterYearning for You.Within me I busk in Your SplendorI see traces of blood being washed away.It’s interesting how it fades to nothing Blood that flows from my veinsAnd in Your side was but water when pierced.I didn’t know what it meansWhy your sweat turned to blood tearsAlthough now I know I don’t think i will ever fully comprehend.Your unconditional love for me That knows no end.You died of a broken heart For me, for us. For all mankind.I pray I will live a life justified of Your sacrifice.But even if I fail which I have and still do.I will boost in You knowing your love for me never will.©pearlynn_writes
Penned April 2020 for a friend in mourning.
Safe with Me
You always put up a strong front.Even when you feel rotten inside.The tent is caving in from a hurricane.There seems no place in sight to hide.You fight to hold back tearsEven when deep down you want to succumb to the strong tides.Oh My Daughter.It’s okay to fall. I've cushioned every wall. Lean against my Love.Let go of your imagined fears.I am bigger than the most vast ocean.There is no storm I can't silence. Every page in your journals, I have read.Everything you feel, I have felt.Your cares are safe with me,I have handled them all.©pearlynn_writes
Inspired during Covid lockdown run
The drawers can no longer contain those clothes.The plant’s roots is straining its pot.The sea overflows its so called banks.And the girl guide tries to secure her flying tent with ropes.The debtors blasted us out of our home. My pot cracked and it’s no longer the same.The tent was stolen and my sandcastle was ruined through my hands.Overthrown. Overgrown. But because of those. You rescued me. Poured me out from my agony. I’m given a new name. No it ain’t a joke. Take away my insecurities.That lovely canopy of blue sky.. You are the best painter & Your mercy entails. Even if I’ve failed, You will still love me won’t You? Don’t ever let me go, Lord how I need You. Clear my weeds. Use me to plant new seeds. Remind me always that my source is You and I am forever Yours to keep.©pearlynn_writes
Tribute to Rob’s Poly
You listened when I had no words.Oh, the fun we had when there was no third.You always welcome me when I’m home. And your fur, all tangled up in comb.Through you, I learnt a different kinda love.The kind, almost close to up above.Thank you for those amazing years.I’d never forget you Poly.Tribute to Rob’s Poly. <3©pearlynn_writes
I was there during those times tears stained your face.The sleepless nights you tossed and turned, helplessness embedded by painMy Love, I’ve been pursuing you from the start.From the sidelines, I’ve been protecting your heart.I’ve been singing and whispering in your ear. And now my darling you hear. I’ve loved you with an everlasting Love.Deeper than the ocean, higher than mountains.I will never disappoint you that’s for certain.So will you take my hand,Enter a true romance.Let’s dance.©pearlynn_writes
The ache to compose something about His love.I pause to feel His loving presence.A warm comfort that envelops me like a glove.Most times I got so busy I don’t realise.The world can be against me but there’s One who will never criticise.When I couldn’t conform to the world’s standards, feeling judged.He sends Word through Kingdom friends to come my way.The storm lifted and I bury the hatchet.However it sometimes doesn’t take long for my heart to sway.For the world can be a very dark place.“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” He says.©pearlynn_writes
Inspired by Korean client’s child
Drool of Glee
The freshness of a childThe gleefulness of a droolWhen did it got lost in the wildNot knowing who’s whoHe trusts and smiles And spread on my arm -his drool.©pearlynn_writes
I miss the feeling. Of being in love.Sun rays caressing the green. Photosynthesis.Rain drops drenching my leaves.His love I’ve tried to resist.He gave me space, understanding.Desperation screams louder in silence. Something was withering from within.Reaching the end of myself. I surrender.Like tangerine on fire.There was this soothing warmth.Alive like a wire. Awakening sleeping desires.My tears flowed like a river.They’ve been gathering inside.The true reason for the sniff front.I’d been trying to hide.Wave upon wave. His love fills my heart.I will finish this race with you. He says.Let’s head back to the start.©pearlynn_writes
I may look beautiful Kept and secureThe truth isI’m made of mud Brown, scarred and allHis hands moulded meEvery hard bend and curveEvery soft hidden spot Created in loveOver time, my paint fainted.Chipped with life unglovedI almost broke to pieces when droppedAmazingly saved by dovesStill He treasures me like I’m new Fresh as the morning dew Stop justifying Your self worth He saysEven if you’re brokenI’ll never throw you away.©pearlynn_writes
Hold on a little longer Lord, won’t You hold on. I didn’t get the initial kick start. For you know I’m slower than most,I’m afraid of sharks.And I need spraying down with your hose.
