When Life Makes No Sense

Sometimes my days and nights make no sense at all,
And I find myself beating my head against the wall,
So I cry out and shout into the vacant air in despair,
But this is when I need you to feed my hungry heart

Hold me closer, hold me tight and be my guiding light;
Let me see your face, your eyes and behold your sight,
Because I cannot win this fight; I need all your might!

Sometimes my life seems like some vagabond waste,
And I taste the bitter gall and just run away in haste,
But I have nowhere to go except to you, my Beloved,
So I am crying out to you, trying to reach your bosom

Hold me closer, hold me tight and be my guiding light;
Let me see your face, your eyes and behold your sight,
Because I cannot win this fight; I need all your might!

Papers lay crumpled on the floor,
Loneliness strikes me to the core,
But it’s only you that I truly adore

Hold me closer, hold me tight and be my guiding light;
Let me see your face, your eyes and behold your sight,
Because I cannot win this fight; I need all your might!

Yeah, I need you in this fight; I need all of your might!

Sometimes my days and nights make no sense at all,
And I find myself beating my head against the wall,
So I cry out and shout into the vacant air in despair,
But this is when I need you to feed my hungry heart

  1. ‘Hold me closer, hold me tight and be my guiding light;
    Let me see your face, your eyes and behold your sight,
    Because I cannot win this fight; I need all your might!’ This is what it is when life makes no sense at all. So hold me close, Lord and allow your grace to fall upon me. Superb poem and these three stanzas said it all. Jonathan you are a great poet.

    1. Oh my! Now I am blushing… What an honor you give me. From the depths of my heart, I am grateful for your most kind and generous words. Thank you so very, very much, Kamal! Blessings to you!

    1. Oh, how I would love to hear this in song! If only someone would put it to music, then you could sing it and I would have the pleasure of hearing my words in song… Yes, our Lord God is powerful to save and always closer to us than our very breath. Thank you!

  2. The poem is really good…It would be great if you add a nice picture depicting the poem as a featured picture. It would add more feel to it.

    1. Thank you . . . but I thought the featured picture WAS appropriate to the poem. Oh well, it was the best I could do. Thank you again, and all the best to you! 🙂

  3. Hi Jonathan, I downloaded a music software and started writing the music. Somehow the software has some problem. When I was 2/3 into writing the notes, the program froze, couldn’t do anything, so had to end the program without saving. Started again, saved it midway. a couple more notes, froze it again. I saved as Word (default), read only, tried to open the file, couldn’t, had error. Shut down, did it the third time. Anyway, I found out that the file I saved, I could open with the software. I’ll take a break and tried again. I have to go through the tutorial to learn how to input the words. I’m learning something new, so that’s good. Something that I’m always curious about how to do it. I’ll continue writing the music and figure out other things. This is the update. Wish me patient!

    1. Oh no! I am so very sorry to hear of all the problems you are having with the software… I hope and pray for no more problems and patience for you, even as I thank you again from the bottom of my heart for doing this. Yes, thank you for going to all of this trouble for me. You make me feel special! God bless you abundantly, especially as we approach Easter . . . truly the celebration of new life!
