Coffee For Your Heart- I will Carry You

 

By Susie Teramura

 

Busy street,

Car full of groceries

Waiting at the light

Tired.

He catches my eye,

Strong and steady

He walks,

Jeans sagging

Plain t-shirt hangs,

Arms wrapped

Tight around his boy,

Worn from the heat

He hoists him up

Close

Boy snuggles in

On shoulders strong

And rests,

Little Head turned out

Eyes watching

The world around him,

While daddy walks

And carries the load.

 

Light turns green

And  I pull away

But My heart

It stays,

And I think of You.

Eyes pool quietly,

As you speak to me,

 

I’ll hold you and

Love you and

Wrap all myself

Around you

I’ll do the walking.

I know the way.

Just rest on me,

I’ve got you today.

 

I breathe heavy and

Wipe away the tear.

How did you

Know what

I needed to hear?

 

I wrap my arms tight

 And hug onto you

You will always and forever

Carry me through.

 

Isaiah 46:4

…….. I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.”
