Dry
Parched
Cracked
Empty
Dying
So thirsty
Water
Just a drop on my tongue.
I whispered,
I cried,
I called out,
"Someone, save me.
I need some water!"

Help, at last;
A touch of a hand,
A sip at my lips,
A voice saying,
"Come."
Hope
I turn,
I crawl,
I follow the voice
Leading me
Toward the water.

Water!
Cool and refreshing.
Flowing, flowing
Endless, boundless
I drink,
I rest,
I plunge beneath.
Lord, fill me
And wash me,
And satisfy me.
With Your water.


Joy!
Laughter!
Singing!
A promise of never
Thirsting again.
I have life.
I am filled.
I see others crying.
With open palms
My cup flowing over.
I carry a drop
To help another
With Living Water.

Beautiful poem, lovely way of expressing reverence to our Lord. I liked the style of the poem as well.

Thanks. God Bless~

I like how each word felt like a droplet of water into the next one, and the word water sat on the outstretched tongue. This is very creative with a great ending message to share the living water with others.

Wow! This is an awesome piece. You did an outstanding job of reversing each line and going from fear to despair and then hope to safety. This kind of format really stands out and your message will touch many.

Lovely poem and beautiful message!

Beautiful poem with a beautiful message. I liked how your MC, as soon as he received the water wanted to help others... the evidence of Jesus in his life.

God bless!
