I Understand

Song I wrote on October 3, 1967
(saved it in my 1967 Spiritual Journal).

I Understand

I understand how you feel when things trouble you,
I know that some things just seem to hard to bear,
When I knelt in the Garden of Gethsemene
I could not feel my Father's presence there.
I know the way your heart fills with grief - with sorrow,
That it feels to much for a mere man,
When I carried that big cross, I felt then just like you,
So you see, I do really understand.

I understand how you feel with many burdens,
My shoulders too carried some so hard to bear,
And when the ones I depended on deserted me,
I felt alone, nobody with me seemed to care.
I too have known the agony of endless waiting,
And for you who are just a mere man,
Shouldn't lean on your own understanding, 
Lean on me, you can see, I understand.

Have a blessed day, my friends. Remember how faithful, how dependable our Lord is. He is coming back: He promised -always keeps His word.

Be good to others- and yourselves too.
Love you much,


  1. Barb, This is beautiful! Really special. I have not read your poetry before. It's poetry, right? It's beautiful!

    Love you, Barb.
