5 minutes: fall

I hear the rain fall on the skylight,
and I wish I could fall into your arms tonight.

When you fell, I wanted so much to catch you,
but I knew it would be this fall
that would change it all.
The man you were, is no longer the man you are.
You have become the man you were meant to be.

Those who doubted and turned their backs will never know,
how the choice you made was so very difficult.
But it was so worth the reward in the end.

To be Redeemed. 

Five Minute Friday


  1. Ooh, this is so hard:

    "but I knew it would be this fall
    that would change it all."

    I've had to watch that happen before, letting someone fall for their own good when I could have caught them once again NOT for their own good. Thanks for sharing this, Cindi.

  2. So very beautiful! Thank you for sharing this post!

  3. Lovely poem! Desolation turned to consolation. Can't happen apart from God.

  4. Oh the fall of redemption! Beautiful! Stopped over from the Five Minute Friday! Have a nice weekend.


A side note to my Words on Wednesday ~ I've truly enjoyed reading everyone's blogs, comments, and posts the past few months, but unfortunately have not been able to comment from Safari, and have to use Chrome for commenting. It is frustrating and annoying to have to log out of one and into the other just for commenting, when everything else I do is on Safari. I'm not sure if it is because I'm using a Mac, but I haven't been able to sign into Google on Safari. I'm still trying, however, just know that if I don't comment, it's not because I haven't enjoyed reading or seeing Sunday's Selections photos.
