What if...

What if we knew without a doubt when...

suffering illness 
 overwhelming loss 
 heart is breaking 
 struggling with a decision
What if when
 consumed with worry 
for our children 
our future
the planet
Or when
 treated unfairly 
buried in doubt
awash in sorrow
filled with rage
wrestling with injustice
engulfed with loneliness
on the brink of despair
the edge of tolerance
end of patience
What if
in those most
critical and personal moments
we knew we were suspended in the embrace
of the strong arms of a benevolent and peaceful angel
Could we then 
in that moment of refuge
find the courage and strength
 to endure
