In the wake of Yolanda, A Prayer
By Sylvia Hubilla
Round Rock, Texas
When everything is lost,
God is The Only One
When everyone you love
is gone, you fear…
God is here, there,
He is the arm, stretching
out to hold you.
From all across the globe, reaching
out to comfort you.
He is all colors of the rainbow, rushing
to your side.
He is the One, bloodied,
drenched to the bone, shivering.
He is the one, lost and alone
with fearful eyes, searching.
He is The One, holding your hands, saying,
for “I was thirsty, and you gave me to drink.
I was hungry, and you gave me to eat.”
