Where Am I

Uncharted path
All too familiar
The waiting room
The long long line
Take a number
Sit down
Resisting
Wishing
I were

Not here at all
A hole in the wall
A narrow hall
The world’s so small
Keep going along
It won’t be long
The room is empty now
Where did they go
Where have I been
What’s going on

Oh
Good morning
I’m awake now
Glad to be back
From there
To sunshine
Blue skies
Apple pies

Just a dream
Sometimes
I remember
Sometimes
I don’t

God was there
And God is here
He knows what I don’t know
He knows whatever I do

Waking or sleeping
My soul’s in His keeping
Jesus is Lord

    a little sad and scary poem that ended with a not of bliss.

    • I agree with you, Trisha. I am very fortunate to know for sure that I am safe in His care all the time. Dreams sometimes take us to strange places, but we are not alone ever. Blessings to you…

    • Thank you. I have fun looking for the right photos. I wish I had more places to search. I use photos from Microsoft Clip Art Galleries. A few times I used Google Images, but I am not sure it’s okay to use them. Yikes!! So I don’t often do it. Thank you for visiting. Blessings to you…
