Make Me Whole

Ugonna Wachuku


The day drags on slowly.
But there are gardens and
flowers to be planted.


There are seeds to be
sown for the harvest.
There are shadows and
dreams to be seen.


There are tears to be
shed; and smiles to be
given on the threshold
of a new beginning.


In my soul;
in the deeper me;
far from the world
and heart that you
know in me, lies that
yawning yearning to
live; to drink from
your life-giving well.


With tears and pleas;
with a broken heart and
shattered dreams, I state
my pain. I shed tears.


I share my dreams
with you; my longings.
I bring my broken pieces
to you; the Potter's


When, at last, I find
my narrow way to that
eternal abode of your
loving grace, I will
fall flat; and my only
plea will be that you
make me whole.

In this beautiful world that God has given us to live in... None of us will ever be complete! But in that final day, all of the pieces will be put into their proper place, and all will be well forever...

You have captured that simple truth in this beautiful poem!
Peace and love ~~~~ Dougie ~~

God in his time will make all things new. How beautiful your words paint a picture of hope and love. You always amaze me how your words leave me feeling so high on life. A feeling no drug in this world could ever give...
Beautiful are the words that come from your heart.
Peace and Love be with you always

I think this poem is my favorite one. This is the truth that abides inside my soul. "I am nothing without my God."

i do love the way you write! You seem to have a strong relationship with God, at least I feel that through what you write. I almost feel a poetic frienship between us. God Bless.
