Safely

A mask of happiness,
Hostile glances,
Confused & timid -
A bubble
Translucent, vulnerable, easy-to-read, small.
With one prick, it is gone.
Every hand held taken back,
Every smile erased;
Weak & afraid.
An intriguing plan He made.
Hands clasped in prayer
Eyes lifted to the blue sky
Asking for God's guidance
Moving in mysterious ways,
I am saved & my heart has been uplifted.
Like a seed, He cared for
Brought sunlight to & nurtured
Like a flower, He held safely in his hands.
