Wednesday Pop-Up: Poem

A memory in my mind

Fading with the sands of time

Far outside my reach

And going out with the tide

I want to grasp you and pull you back

But I know I have to let you go

So I draw back my hand

And smile

And wave goodbye

I watch as you fade off into the horizon

Until you disappear into the evening sun

For me, tomorrow will be

A journey all alone

Destination—unknown

Christ will lift my burden

He will make a new day rise

And carry my dreams

On eagle’s wings.
