Holding On


the leaves were trembling, barely hanging on. 
their bright colors the same as my heart
the air was cold and biting 
as i wondered how its beauty faded.
lost in the pain of the moment. 

my hands were shaking, trembling with pain
as the autumn rain tried to cleanse this day
i traced the etches of the flood down the window pane
and watched my breath disappear in the air
drowning in the memories and dreams.

my heart beat on despite the pain
even after i thought my tears 
would wash it all away. 
when you fake a smile but your heart is breaking
just like the colorful leaves before they fall. 

and like the leaves being tossed about
and pulled from every direction, 
i made a wish that You would find
beauty amidst my ashes. 
beauty amidst my ashes. 

"Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words." Romans 8:26

"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." Psalms 34:18
