Pause for Poetry – On That Day

Welcome to Pause for Poetry featuring a poem written by my writer-friend, Shirley Specht Johnson.

On That Day
by Shirley Specht Johnson

With a broken heart, HE died for thee.

All His love upon that tree.

Never knowing the debt he paid,

on that dark and lonely day.

Sin and sickness of every soul.

What great love did he hold?

People grieved, people mourned.

The sun was darkened; the veil was torn.

But then,

on another day.

They found the stone was rolled away.

He rose from death in that tomb,

knowing souls before their mother’s womb

He walked with grace, He saw with love,

He spoke of hope from above.

He left a word “Do not grieve.”

“I’ll send you comfort.” “Just believe.”

So, walk with grace, see with love,

Speak of hope from above.

For on that day He died for thee,

He died for all humanity.
