Make your own poem...

I found this at Kimberley's Blog and she found it somewhere else. ;o) Finish each sentence to create your own bit of poetry.

I am
I wonder
I hear
I see
I want
I am

I pretend
I feel
I touch
I worry
I cry
I am

I understand
I say
I dream
I try
I hope
I am

Here's mine:

I am weary
I wonder what the dog is barking at
I hear her barking
I see nothing in the darkness
I want her to be quiet and let me sleep
I am weary

I pretend to be strong
I feel so weak
I touch Catherine's damp forehead
I worry that she's been sick
I cry tears of hopelessness
I am so far behind in getting this house in order

I understand this too shall pass.
I say "be strong, and of good courage"
I dream that I am not afraid
I try not to be
I hope I can be strong
I am so weary.

Yes, yes. I do understand and completely sympathize. It's okay. There are seasons of weariness. They make those seasons of strength so much sweeter. My prayers for you...
