Depression Takes A Life ~ Anchored In Him

You don't know how you hurt me
That sad and dreadful day
My heart just won't quit aching
I don't know what to say.

The tears I cry are endless
The pain cuts like a knife
Why did you go so quickly
The day you took your life?

My soul is filled with sorrow
That others cannot know
I often search for answers
Why did you have to go?

My world once bright and cheerful
Now hides behind a veil
The shock, the guilt, the anguish
Is more than I can tell.

I miss you every moment
It's more than I can bear
This grief so ever present
Goes with me everywhere.

I looked to God for comfort
He gently touched my hand
He whispered words of wisdom
"Someday, you'll understand."

I looked to God for answers
I gazed into His eye
He said that you were troubled
And that you chose to die.

Sometimes the mind gets jumbled
The thoughts drift far away
The brain, no longer lucid
Is twisted, dark and gray.

We often do not see it
It's hidden from our sight
While others walk in sunshine
Depression rules the night.

While others seek out pleasure
Depression looks for pain
While others seek the sunshine
Depression finds the rain.

While others look for roses
Depression sees the thorn
When others seek out laughter
Depression makes one mourn.

Depression is a stalker
It takes the breath away
It zaps the joy of living
It darkens up the day.

But there is hope in Jesus
His Word is very real
It's written in the Bible
His hand will surely heal.

Since Jesus died for sinners
He purged the sting of sin
Despair no longer lingers
When you give your life to Him.

You will surely find some solace
When you go to Him in prayer
As you yield your life to Jesus
You will find the answer there.
