Incredible Journey

Incredible journey they have embarked on
With overwhelming joy accompanying them
As the train slowly gathered speed
Moving past the scenes on its way

A precious moment much anticipated
An indelible event in the young lives
At three and six, gathering experience
The boys can't contain the happiness

Cared by their doting grandma
They yearn for what lies ahead
Though it has yet to reveal itself
It has already won their trust

Optimism leads their young hearts
Equipping them for the adventure
And, unwittingly, they brighten my day
And release my reservoir of words
As I sour past the memories this day
Of the burdens that befell me
Thirteen rough years ago this day

A journey of survival it's been
This train ride, comprising one step
An effort to conform to God's word
So that we gracefully survive
And, mercy, we spread towards others
As God has devised it all well
Such great knitting God is capable of
In the great fabric of the events

Though the yarn of the past was dark
In darkness, for the future, it's knitted
Suddenly, when the yarn gathered color
My eyes had seen God's light
And the fabric had turned colorful
For many years, it had been knitted
On this day, God has colored my heart
In the presence of two little optimists
As he knits the fabric of their lives
May they blossom and shine in the wide world
