      A poem I’d written today while an uneasy time I had… Do you also pray through poetry sometimes?

      Anyway – The translation doesn’t contain much of the artistic beauty of the original (rhyme, meter, and – suddenly, when needed, English decided to not have enough words), but I think I should share it anyway. I hope it’ll help someone(s) there 🙂

      Thank @kimlikesart for the metaphor of desert / wilderness to those trials 🙂

      Critiques, likes and grammatical corrections are welcome!

       

      The fire fades in my soul

       

      The fire fades in my soul

      Only embers are left of my bonfire

      And my candle dies down inside me

      And my light goes out my heart

      Ignite my passion in me again

       

      Renew a clean, pure heart in me

      That is burning, hungry, thirsty for the light

      My God, please give in me thoughts

      That wander only towards You

      Renew a holy, white heart in me

       

      So I shall desire only You, please

      And shall wait and hope to Your presence

      Purify my head from meaninglessness

      And be the main thing in my life

      You redeemed me and I am Yours

       

      My God, to You I shall beg

      For I could not darn it

      I shall not renew my heart

      But only Your sovereign power will

      Renew in me a laughing, singing heart

       

      I will know, and remember – You are with me

      I am not alone against my trouble

      You will give me Your supreme power

      With which I shall pass through any trial

      Strengthen me in the heart of the desert

       

      When You will give an end to the wilderness

      I will lift up my eyes in humility

      I will know and remember and not forget

      You are with me – In You I will trust

      Embrace me in love

        It is very good. Though in the desert, and feeling alone, you choose to have faith that God is near. You choose to press harder into Him. You know that there will be an end to the struggle. That God has you, and will not let the dry times be wasted.

        Thank you for sharing!!!
