Many things I hoped for; things I thought would be,
And still longed for; settled deep into the sediment,
On the bottom of my “River of Forgotten Dreams” .
Days rolling, pounding youthful aspirations of glee,
Into haunting memories; lost in regretful rudiment;
Hazy days in deep flowing purple ambition streams;
New rain! Emotions flood-rush! Setting sludge free…
Temptation calling revived desire; plots defilement;
Set to trap settled content in heavy guilt schemes;
My Merciful Master designed a better plan for me;
Grace intervened! Rescued from sin’s impediment!
Not abandoned in my “River of Forgotten Dreams”.
Jesus shepherds my heart so sin won’t destroy me!
