This haiku is dedicated to painkiller who is going through a really tough time in his life.

"He Gives"

Jesus will give you
Crowns of beauty for ashes
And strength for your fear

He'll comfort you with
Oil of gladness for mourning
And peace for despair

He'll wipe away tears
That pour from your injured heart
And give you laughter

Because when you weep
He weeps as well, but then He'll
Take you in His arms

He will hold you close
And sing softly to you 'til
You despair no more

"The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, Because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor, He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor and the day of vengeance of your God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion-- to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor." ~Isaiah 61:1-3 Reviews are very much appreciated.
