Original pen name – Rebecca Ellen Hickson
The days have past, turned into years.
Times of sadness, emptiness and tears.
But each tear has been gathered.
By one whose love would never cease.
By a God who willingly gives us peace.
It took some time for me to realize,
I was never really without a friend.
The Lord was always with me.
Collecting my tears in His hand.
Time and time again I would turn to God,
when consumed with despair.
In hope that there was someone who cared.
I opened the door,
which was continuously knocked upon.
His entrance wrought within my heart
an instant bond.
A friendship which would last forever
with one accord.
This friend is my constant companion,
He is Jesus Christ my Lord.
