I Don’t Believe

I don’t believe I’m always longing
for love…
when I don’t believe anyone does.

I don’t believe I’m always wanting
to care…
when I don’t believe anyone can.

I don’t believe I’m always having
dreams…
when I don’t believe they happen.

I don’t believe I’m always making
wishes…
when I don’t believe they come true.

I don’t believe I’m always searching
for happiness…
when I don’t believe I’ll find it.

I don’t believe I’m always willing
to share…
when I don’t believe it matters.

I don’t believe I’m always thinking of
marriage…
when I don’t believe it works.

I don’t believe I’m always saying
forever…
when I don’t believe it lasts.

I don’t believe I’ve always thought
I was fair…
when I don’t believe I am.

When it comes to believing in
something or someone…
I don’t believe I do.

My 1st Mother’s Day as a Mom 🙂

Floating Nest

Moanings and groanings,
I hear all around me.
The flock is restless.
Their sighs have found me.
The unknown day
of opening the door
seems so far away
when we’ve found no shore.
Our lingering spirits
threaten to doubt
all that God has promised
to bring us out.
As our prayers are lifted,
a calming arrives.
His Faithful Spirit
lovingly revives.
The flock is comforted
and finds sweet rest
knowing that God provided
this floating nest.
