BREAD OF SORROW by Gwenneth Leane

God has made it clear people do not live by bread alone, but every word that God speaks.

The bread of sorrow

Was bitter to my heart

The loss of my beloved left a hole

That even time could not erase

The bread of sorrows heavily weighed

 Upon my broken heart

Many words of comfort spoken

Yet no solace was my lot

The bread of sorrow

I would eat for evermore

Unless there should be another

To assuage dark grief

Ýou provide delicious food for me in the presence of my enemies
You have welcomed me as your guest; blessings overflow.’
Psalm 23: 5

The bread of sorrow was cast aside

A greater love filled the wasteland of my heart

 A selfless love that I could not comprehend

My mind so taken with the here and now

The bread of sorrow became the bread of joy.

My pain was healed no scar was left

So perfect was this love

No-one could come between

The bread of joy filled my life with song

My daily meditation a paean of praise

My God had turned the bread of sorrow

Into bread of rapture regardless of the circumstance.
