Dark Memories

Approaching the altar,

My steps began to falter

My situation – I hoped to alter.

For the fate of my daughter

..

Depended on the words I was about to utter.

Thereby, “faith” I tried to muster

Yet my utterance came out a stutter

Of desperate mutters.

..

But that was just for starters

Because my child met with an accident in her quarters:

She had slipped over a patch of butter

Thus falling prey to an active coal cutter

..

And due to the fact that no One was around to halt her,

We dispatched a bloody figure to Calcutta

The workplace of our family doctor.

..

Now I know I haven’t done this before

But this risk is too high to endure

I needed someone to assure

Me that her recovery they would ensure.

..

So God, here I am before the altar.

  1. Oh wow,
    Your twist was so extraordinary. At first I thought it was the wedding day of his daughter. Although, I couldn’t fit in the title “Dark Memories”; so I concluded that he must be sad to give away his beloved daughter in marriage. Only to find out later that it was a completely different story-line than I was thinking.

    This is really an original piece. Please write more of such lovely poems. They are a blessing to this world. You are so good in that you in all your poems no matter how it starts, you still find a way to preach the gospel and bring the focus back to God.

    This is really an extraordinary amazing talent… please develop it more by working harder on it and writing more. Don’t get lazy – I know how it can sometime feel.

    1. Thank you very much for your heart-warming comment. I’m glad you like it and it has also impacted you in a way.
      I will be sure to honor your request of writing more poems and not give in to laziness. However, I would also request that you pray for me to keep me on the right track.
