Poetry-Secret (Five Minute Friday)

A secret kept

As mother wept

And shadows

Lie within.

Looming pain

The secret stain

Of disappointment

And shame.

Still she moves

With strength to prove

What Almighty God can do.

No doubt inside

Though she’ll hide

From those right by her side.

Her secret safe

Tears erased

Before they reach

Her cheek.

A quiet place

Is all she needs

Love her heart will seek.

Secret locked away

Saved for another day

Where reconciliation

will be.

The secret kept

And mother wept

And forgiveness

Lies within.

Looming pain

Wiped away

The lost to be

His Kingdom’s gain.

  1. Thank you for sharing these beautiful words. There is healing and reconciliation in sharing our secrets first with God and then with others who love us.
