When the days overwhelm you,
Relief seems so far away.
Frustration sits on your shoulder
And still you pretend all is okay.
You struggle through each hour
And mental stability starts shaking
Too much to do and very little time –
You are tired with head that is aching.
Somehow, you make it through
And you are eager to get rest.
You made some mistakes today
But despite all, you did your best.
Now the demands of the day are asleep
And God sends an angel to soothe you.
You are showered with divine peace
And rubbed down with strength to renew you.
Thoughts of tomorrow are of no importance
And in rest, you become peacefully tangled.
Gruesome days may drag us down a bit
But there is rest in the arms of an angel.
