LOST IN YOUTH
A young woman lost in her youth
Confused, easily distracted in her vibrant beauty
Her image, her strengths
Thoughts of greatness and stimulating adventures always
Challenges desired, challenges accomplished only in search for more;
Loving prayers of a brother or sister spoken often
That she would one day turn
As a delightful flower to the new morning sunshine
The glow of Light in new beauty within,
Beauty that does not fade with years that pass like a breath
But only grows deeper and more radiant!
True prayers from the heart follow her footsteps
As eyes once nearby now watch from a distance;
What was close and longed for drifted away,
But a greater desire remained
In those who look to their Lord of Destiny,
Fix their thoughts on their Eternal Living Hope revealed!
Soon the day will come when the body wears out
And outward beauty is gone
Yet, many prayers as angel wings soar high above
Before the One, the only Sovereign Powerful Throne
Heavenly Love welcomed in a sacrifice of thanksgiving at last!
