The Gift

I hold in my hand a beautiful gift

Wrapped in pink and black lace

The one who gave it looked in my eyes

A smile on His beautiful face

I hold this gift in my trembling hands

Wondering, is it what I’ve hoped for

Do I dare unveil its beauty?

Do I risk disappointment and more?

Breathing in its tempting scent

I gently lift it to my face

A sweet aroma meets my breath

I pull it close for a longing embrace

My delight in it slowly starts to fade

As fear and risk whisper their taunting

I hold it still looking, still wanting and needing

The possibility within it just haunting

Is it the beauty that my heart has desired?

Is it full of laughter and joys?

Is it false hope – a new failing chapter

Is another of evil’s harsh ploys?

I look again at the one who gave it

Tears welling up in my eyes

Can I trust this one, my maker

To a gift that will not be of lies?

He stares at me with understanding

Compassion in knowing my trials

Yet he gently encourages me to take it

Wearing the gentlest of smiles

How can I find the courage?

I am so full of dread

Anymore disappointment

And I’ll wish I were dead

Yet my fingers, very shyly

hesitantly pull on a bow

My future before me

Not my own, but only His to know

I am scared, but trust Him
