Scars by Anneliese Garrison, RN
© written 8/86

I will never be able to gain back
all the things you took away.

The cuts may heal,
but the scars won't go away.

I am having a difficult time,
but I know I will make it
when I get to the end of the line.

Just as Jesus has the scars
from the nails in His hand
and the spear in His side.
So will I always that feeling of hurt,
that feeling of sorrow deep down inside.

I have so many dreams in life.
So many goals.
Jesus will help me through;
I can feel it in my soul.

I must keep my eyes on Jesus.
and soon I will see the dawn.
The beginning of a new day.
What a wonderful feeling!

Christ is here with me to stay.
