Five Minute Friday: Close



I couldn’t feel Him

They told me He was close

But there wasn’t peace in my soul.

I screamed at Him.

Why did you take her?

I wasn’t ready,

It couldn’t have been time.

I spiraled down, away from Him.

Tears fell

For oh so long,

Then one day I was done.

It took three and a half years,

But I forgave Him.

I came back.

I found the place where I could heal.

That was almost a year ago, now.

This time

I know it was time

Tears fall,

But it’s only because I miss him.

This time,

I’m not mad at God.

Grandpa’s in a better place.

And I’ll be there someday

This time

I have peace

Because I know God is close

This time

I think I can heal

I can feel Him

Holding me close

Oh, so close.




I think this ^ explains why I haven’t posted in over a month. At least a little bit. My Grandpa passed away May 1, 2014. and I haven’t written hardly at all. I’m going to try to start writing something for this blog every once in a while now. No promises as to the schedule though. The only reason I even posted this is because I saw the prompt and knew I had to write for it.
