When In Doubt




She's sitting on the edge of life looking back,
she stares off in the distance
remembering
something...
what was it 
she was never supposed to forget?

What was the one thing?
The most important thing...

She ponders
stroking her chin
searching archives 
wrapped in bone and flesh.

She winces.
Thinking
is harder these days.

Memories grow dim
yet still
lurk,

sometimes skipping to the forefront
of her mind.

She sighs
sweetly smiling,

knowing,

remembering

what she promised to never forget.


Promised 
to never stop believing.

His promise
of Love.

He promised.
She remembered.

Forever.
She knows.

His love 
never fails.



Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good. 
            His love endures forever. 
Give thanks to the God of gods. 
            His love endures forever. 
Give thanks to the Lord of lords: 
            His love endures forever.
 to him who alone does great wonders, 
            His love endures forever. 
who by his understanding made the heavens, 
            His love endures forever. 
who spread out the earth upon the waters, 
            His love endures forever. 
who made the great lights— 
            His love endures forever. 
the sun to govern the day, 
            His love endures forever. 
 the moon and stars to govern the night; 
            His love endures forever.
