Poem as read by Dennis Rainey on the radio broadcast of “FamilyLife Today”.
I have lost my husband,
but I am not supposed to mourn.
I have lost my children;
they don’t know to whom they belong.
I have lost my relatives; they do not approve.
I have lost his relatives; they blame me.
I have lost my friends; they don’t know how to act.
I feel I have lost my church.
Do they think I have sinned too much?
I’m afraid of the future. I’m ashamed of the past.
I’m confused about the present.
I’m so alone.
I feel so lost.
God, please stay by me.
You are all I have left.
