Quietly Waits

Lines upon the brow take one from
a weary place of loneliness
eyes lost their glow and are now glum
for the one who is now homeless

Turn of events leave one alone
struggle to find their place of new
body sleeps in a place not known
prays dream now is not coming true

Empty and lost of wage and home
walking the streets cold and alone
dirty and crumbled one does roam
seeks a new found beautiful throne

Quietly waits - are his prayers heard?
Ones cold cries call to his Savior
longing to hear His promised word
please forgive sinful behavior

- Rhoda Galgiani
