Richard W. Reith


When there is no man anymore
to lead and to understand,
they all shun
and refuse to believe in men.

They just needed
a shining star
to help them on their journey,
and shine a light
on their pressure and pain
during dark and lonely nights

When there is no one left
to console,
No one to lift them up,
they cry out in the pain
of a drifting soul
needing the safety of the shore.

When there is no one
to run to,
God opens his arms
To harbor the wounded soul.
When there is no one
To understand,
God sends understanding
In His own way.

When all is said,
When all is done,
God will provide peace
To those who will shelter in His arms,
In HIS love.
