With The Eyes Of Your Heart- A Poem By Niki

With The Eyes Of Your Heart

Little one the unspeakable
Has been placed before your eyes
So much happening
Too much to realize
A hurt so deep
Words are not enough
So you keep it all in
Trying to be tough

You've seen things
You never should have seen
Been places
You never should be
You've known pain
The heart should never feel
Your worst nightmare
Became something real

You feel alone and unloved
Unwanted wherever you go
But there is one who cares
He cares more than you know
He can be your God and Father
Your best friend
He promises a life of joy
Life that will not end

So come into his arms
He'll wipe away each tear
No more reasons to cry
No more reasons to fear
When you're lost
He'll show you the way
He'll help you to believe
In something better than today

He'll replace your nightmares
With only happy dreams
A hope for something real
Our eyes of faith can see
When life seems hopeless
That it's falling apart
Little one see the future
With eyes of your heart

  1. Niki, the words of this poem are so beautiful and moving. You put into words so well the reflection of the love we see in the eyes of the children you post via Instagram and this blog. Thank you. Darlene
