03/11/2017 Eye of the Storm: Falsely Accused (excerpt)

At the beginning of The Eye of the Storm, I wrote a poem for my daughters. I have often written poems and songs to lament my losses and deal with my grief. It's easier to endure the grief when we know that the story ends well, therefore I hope you enjoy the journey from the beginning to the end.

Chapter 1: Coasting into Frigid Waters

For my Daughters:

God's Horizon

There are things we've said that are mostly misunderstood, If I could explain or take them back, please know that I would, I take on the burdens I deserve, But I'm not all to blame, You should never have been a part of any of this shame,

My heart gets broken and then restored, And in-between those times it shatters even more, Abandoned to the ocean, lost out to the sea, And someday God's Horizon, Will bring you back to me,

You were there through all the joy and pain, So dig even deeper, To identify the stain, For when you see the catalyst, Of all that has occurred, You'll have a clearer vision, Beyond things which still seem blurred.

My heart gets broken and then restored, And in-between those times it shatters even more, Abandoned to the ocean, lost out to the sea, And someday God's Horizon, Will bring you back to me,

Pulled out of the abyss, I was walking in the dark waiting for death's kiss, After all that I did good, All… All of that survives inside of you, Listen to our God, you'll know what's true, It's all that's left for me to do,

My heart gets broken and then restored, And in-between those times it shatters even more, Abandoned to the ocean, lost out to the sea, And someday God's Horizon, Will bring you back to me,

And someday God's Horizon, Will Bring you back to me, Oh, Someday God's Horizon, Will bring you back to me.
