I hope you enjoy.. .. yeah yeah and thanks for always caring

She wakes in the night and lets out a cry
Did not intend to , but it came right out
Oh Lord help me she cry's
Burning and Throbbing in Pain
Yet again tonight she cry's
She quietly sneaks from the bed
not wanting to wake her husband sleeping at her side
Limping and crying she struggles from the room
Grasping the stair banister with both hands as not to fall.
She struggles down to the living room
Once there she cry's out in the night
Oh Dear God help me , Give me strength she cry's
I can't do this again tonight
The room is dim as she reaches for her candle
Lighting the candle she starts to pray
Its ok Lord , Its you and I now.
I know you'll get me through this night
A Cry In The Night
A flicker from a single candle
She Prays for the pain to ease and sleep to come
She prays for strength
Ready to start the new day

and then this one... i wrote after my first couple of days after using the pain patch.

I asked God for help
I asked God for hope
and yes he answered me.
Long has it been since I woke without pain
I spent many a night praying
many a night crying
A flicker of hope that's all I need
I prayed , I asked and I was answered
Thank you Lord for reaching down and touching me
The hope you have given
The child you have saved in me
to finally wake pain free
The hope I needed , Our Lord Hath Blessed me with
A Flicker Of Hope Has Been Given

(I'm sorry I had to edit your post a bit but part of the forum rules state :No posts of an overtly political or religious nature Plus, I work in Firefox and tried hard to restore the colors you had but couldn't get it to work. Sorry...btw, Your writing is very beautiful!)

Your poems are very beautiful. I can relate the first one I am there every night. Your poem touches me and reminds me I'm not the only one up crying at night.
I write poems too mostly religious and it makes me SO sad to see that being edited out. People who live with chronic pain need God. It's such a part of who I am and how I am dealing with this. I would love to be able to share my poems here but, I can't post a poem knowing that it will be changed. Religious poems are not crude or offensive I miss freedom of speech. Especially here.

Hi Laura .
Thanks very much.. yes my Faith is what gets me through,
I did not even think about Quoits from the bible not being allowed. my bad I guess. did not follow the rules.  shakehead  
Sorry guys... its a shame we re all so afraid to share our belief in God. Faith is very much needed to get through this DD. But I do understand Board rules.
it would be nice if we could have a worship board also ,
but at least I was able to share my poems. thought some people might be able top relate. specially to the Cry in the night.
Take care all... Soft Fibro hugs. smilewinkgrin

I wish it wasn't that way, either.  God has gotten me this far with fibro.  You can mention your faith, as I do, but you can't be overtly religious...or political for that matter.  It's because we have people from around the world coming to this forum and we don't all have the same faiths.  So, what gives me hope might really offend others.  That's why we have this rule.  I hope you all understand. 
But, FMsadden...your poems are beautiful...even with whatever was taken out!  They still have a lot of meaning.
