Cold Weather’s Come

Cold Weather’s Come

By Flora Jackson Sawyer


The birds have flown

the winter nears

and you my love have gone

the birds will find

their nesting place

but I will face the winter yet alone


God, is there not relief for me?

my heart grows cold

for lack of sympathy…


be glad dear one

for I have seen 

and hold a place

where angels have not been


(the gentle hum

of winging birds

is ne’er so sweet 

as when His voice is heard)


so wait dear one

let not that pain

cause you to fall

but soar above the rain

so that one day

thy heart with wings

shall share the joy 

and peace His gladness brings
