The Earth Has Shifted- A Poem for Our Time

Longing for human touch
Seeking connection
Phone calls, zoom, Skype, Facetime
But it’s not enough.
How long, how long, oh Lord
You Lord are here, touch me
I cry for all your people Lord
I cry for myself
We are weary, our bones ache
We pray, oh Lord, for renewed strength
We say we’ll get through this
We say we’re in this together
We need to feel Your love for us
We need to feel it in our bones and in our hearts.
The earth has shifted
Our lives have changed forever
I pray for hope, love, and compassion
I pray for strength, strength
In Your abiding love for us
We are not alone. You are with us always
Always and forever, Praise God
