The Visit~ A Poem by Emily Ciszewski


There's Someone special,
Knocking on my heart's door.
I feel Him knocking
And I begin to feel sore,
Because this Someone, who is special to me,
He wants my all, He wants everything.
Jesus wants everything.....
He wants me to give, until there's nothing left.
To live, until I'm at His door-step.....
But I'm so stubborn, I don't want to let this up.
My dreams are too precious to go.
I'm so foolish, because I know what needs to be done,
But I don't do it....
There's Someone special, He's back again,
And every time I close my eyes
He's floating inside my head......
Asking me to give - until there's nothing left.
To live - until I'm at His door-step.....
But I'm so stubborn, I don't want to let this up.
I hear His voice, touch at my heart,
"My dreams are yours - if you are mine - and your dreams are mine - if I am yours...."
I grasp my dreams.....to my soul....
The tug is still there...that selfish pull...
Then I feel a hand rest, over mine,
I know I have to
I let them go.
The tears pour
Down my cheeks
I feel the pain, the loss, like rain, dreading all was lost in vain
Then I turn around
And see,
He's been holding all those dreams.....
For me........
