About the Poem

This poem was written for a friend of mine who was trying to decide what to do with his marriage. Sometimes, for varied reasons, we often feel trapped in the life we are in. At these times, we feel no one really understands who we are or what we need. God always cares.

A Few Visitor Comments

I don't know why I chose to read this poem because I was looking for a poem about rosebuds. I am so glad I did. I hope anyone that is going through a difficult time in thier marriage will read this poem. I am in a loving marriage now but at one time I had problems and gave up. So many times we give up instead of giving God charge of our problems. A beautiful poem.

My Silent Screams

I'm hurting on the inside
God, do you see how I feel?
This time my heart is worn out
And I don't know if it will heal.

This woman stands before me
Who was once my bride;
The love that I used to feel
Somehow it has died.

There are so many things
I would like to say;
Silently my heart yearns
For brighter, happier days.

I want to do the right thing
It's not that I am a saint;
I would like to say I love her
But inside God,...I can't.

I don't know what the future holds
There is so much I can't see;
But God, at this time in my life
You will have to love her for me.

I know I can't find the words
I can't make my love like new;
I give to you all the painful years
And my hurting heart too.

Please take my heart and heal it
Put you love in its place;
Then when we look at each other
We will see a reflection of your grace.
