Shoelaces of Grace

by dianarasmussen

shoelaces

She walks up the steps that stormy day

Black eye tells the story of why she can’t stay

She stands beside me with open hands

A torn tattered life hanging on to

 

Shoelaces of Grace

Her Hope is reborn with

Shoelaces of Grace

She’s walking forward

 

Leaves everything to find shelter here

Clings to Him with just a wing and a prayer

Her faith humbles me that Sunday morning

She feels love come down with

Shoelaces of Grace

Her Hope is reborn with

Shoelaces of Grace

She’s walking forward with

 

knotted laces from trying to survive

bound up anxious desperate for life

Shoelaces of Grace

Her Hope is reborn with

Shoelaces of Grace

She’s walking forward with

Shoelaces of Grace
