Shattered Dream





They’re all gone, Lord
All the dreams of the past weeks
Gone, in an instant
Why, why did you allow the hope
And then steal the blessing?
The house, the church…
All the good we had planned
Gone, with the money we didn’t get
You know our hearts
They weren’t selfish
Now what?
What do we do now?
How do we keep the dreams?
I can’t see
I can’t even begin to imagine
Others get blessed
I believed we were getting blessed
I believed when everything said not to
I believed you made the impossible, possible
But you didn’t
It all disappeared
I don’t understand
Make me understand!
