Inside the Empty Hours

Inside the Empty Hours

A Poem by Donald Cole

"It is our actions that demonstrate the purest form of what is contained in our hearts......." Don C


Inside the Empty Hours


Inside the empty hours

I find me thinking of you

Through the days of my mind

Whatever I’m going through

You hold me in your heart

But there is no room

For what it is you give to me

Like a flower that won’t bloom

Still I think of you

It doesn’t seem to change

And then when we are eye to eye

These thoughts you rearrange

And I’m holding on to nothing here

For you let go so fast

Before a moment becomes a memory

I find me in your past

And I’m not longing any more

For you just won’t catch me

Couldn’t really hold on anyhow

When it’s you running away I see

And I can’t do anything else

Except for with what I’m shown

And I find me in the looking glass

Of all the things I’ve known

And God IS in the middle

Now I realize in the end

For He is showing me everything I need

In the messages I’m sent

And I see a little clearer

Through the world I’m shown

And I’m walking on my own path

Into a new world unknown

And in the empty hours

My mind, it starts to shift

And my path I’ll give to You

For my life is Your gift

And I come to realize

It’s just not about me

And I give up, to give in too

For You who set me free.

Don C

Sorry for all you've been through, friend. If giving hugs could fix it all, I'd give you all you need.
