Poems

 

And He Will

When the road gets rocky and hurts your feet

When feelings get hurt and you just feel beat

 

When it seems no one will ever care

Then it's time to go to the Lord in Prayer

 

Ask him for courage and for him to heal

Any misgivings or pain that you may feel

 

and.. He will

 
 
 
 

Are You Ready

 

Are you ready? He said

One night as I lay on my bed

 

Ready for what? I had to know

Ready to learn, ready to go

 

Go where, and what must I learn?

He looked and whispered. You must return

 

Return to where? It wasn't very clear

He replied, To the place you fear

 

Back to the Battle, back to the race

Back to the Savior back to the Holy Place

 

You've been gone for so long

You no longer have a song..

 

Deep down in the depths of your heart

Too long my child have we been apart

 

You must again pick up your sword

You must again pick up my Word

 

I will never forsake you

This much is true

 

I'll keep your path true and steady

Child, you must return. Are you ready?

 

Beauty IsÖ

I have seen the golden leaves fall to the ground

Iíve seen the precious jewels in his majestyís crown

 

But if you ask me what beauty truly is

I would sit right back and tell you this

 

Beauty is, my Loveís dark brown eyes

Her gentle love that wears no disguise

 

Beauty is her smile and soft touch

Itís how she loves you, oh so much

 

Beauty is her long dark flowing hair

Itís the power of her affectionate stare

 

Beauty is in her small sweet kiss

Not a day with her would I miss

 

Beauty is in her lips that gleam

Being with her is like a dream

 

No where else would I rather be

Than with my Love right next to me

 

So Beauty is truly You; my Love

A Precious gift sent from up above

 

 

Forgive Me

Will you ever be able to forgive me

I'm selfish and dirty, but don't mean to be

 

I've said things that have broken your heart

But it's my wish that we never be apart

 

Without you what would life be

I'm begging you to forgive me

 

The answer you must say

Will you forgive me yay or nay

 

Your answer is extremely odd,

but it must be right, for you are God

 

Your answer was the life of your son

Through him you say the battles won

 

So now your answer is made clear

You gave your son and wiped away my tear

 

I didn't deserve the grace that came from thee

But with his blood you said you have forgiven me

 

 

Night and Day

 

You are the beautiful daylight

I am the cold dark night

 

We are so different you and I

I have the moon, you the sun in your sky

 

But we can not live without each other

Itís like a child without a mother

 

It was your love that brought me into the sun

You taught me thereís nothing that canít be done

 

Then I showed you the beauty of all my stars

And in my darkness you shared with me your scars

 

I am the deep dark night

You are the bright day light

 

We are so very much alike you and I

We both watch over the same sky

 

So itís a futile thought to resist

We need each other or neither would exist.

 

Pain

I wish somehow I could ease your pain,

But when I lift my hand you make me refrain

 

It hurts me to see you this way

With tears in your eyes everyday

 

You can't keep this inside, you must let it go

Pain is nothing more than poison to the soul

 

You are my friend

and I can not pretend

 

That your pain is not affecting me

Let me help this is my plea

 

I'll be here if you want to talk

I'll join you in a somber walk

 

I will listen

As your eyes glisten

 

With the tears

you've held back for years

 

Then I'll put my arms around you

Bow my head and cry with you

 

Then the sun will come out and shine

And we'll leave the pain behind.

 

Thinking of You

The sun is almost gone with the day

Now the land has grown dark and gray

 

So here I am sitting, staring at the moon

Hoping that I will be able to see you soon

 

I sit under the star filled sky, wondering where you are

Hoping youíre thinking of me, looking at your own star

 

In the lonely silence, I wish you were here with me

In the darkness, I wish you were here to help me see

 

My heart is crying out for you to hear

A loud sad sobbing, wishing you were near

 

Near for me to touch and see

Near so together we could be

 

But Iíll have to look up at my star

Just to wonder where you are

 

And Pray that far beyond the eye can see

Youíre sitting watching your stars, thinking of me

 

 

 

Until I See You Again

My Love until I see you again

Oh, the places Iíll see you in

 

Iíll see you in the beauty of the setting sun

Iíll see you wherever couples in love have fun

 

Iíll see you in a corner on the street

Iíll see you in a stranger that I meet

 

Iíll see you in a beautiful flower

And Iíll see you in the darkest hour

 

Iíll see you every time I see a gentle brook flow

I'll see you in the light, of the moonsí pale glow

 

Iíll see you wherever a ray of golden sunlight gleams

I will see you in the sweetest of all my dreams

 

Iíll see you in the bright Crystal Lake

You will be in every breath I Take

 

Iíll see you wherever I go, and all the places Iíve been

I will see you forever, until I see you again.

 

The Path of you and Me

The Path of you and me was never walked

It was only from a distance that we talked

 

There were Bridges built and Bridges Burned

There were lessons taught and lessons learned

 

At times I'd return to the path of you and me

Sit, and stare down as far as I could see

 

See the path we did not cross

See it still green with grassy moss

 

Sit and wonder what might have been 

But this is now and that was then

 

Now I must travel on my path alone

And think back and remember with a groan

 

Of the friendship we once shared

Of the times when we really cared

 

Your path has now verged to go with him

and I feel the light on mine has grown dim

 

My path is still with and for God

He is the very reason on this path I do trod

 

I have him here with me this I always knew

But I think it would be easier if I could walk with you

 

But perhaps it's best we did not try

For now all that's left to say is... Good-bye

 

 

The Stranger in My World

You were a stranger in my world

 

You did not fit, but you really tried to

You pretended that you knew exactly what to do

 

My world was so very different to you

It was like nothing you had never knew

 

I wondered why you stayed in it

When everyone else would always quit

 

They laughed at you and you still stayed

They cheated you, but you still played

 

You did not belong, and I could not see

That the only reason you stayed, was me

 

You cared for me in a way others wouldn't

You touched a part of me others couldn't

 

You told me of a man who made the blind see

You told me how they nailed him to an old tree

 

You said in the grave he did not stay

He arose and lives to this very day

 

You said through him we could live forever

Others just laughed and said never

 

But I listened and you made me see

That the stranger in this world was me

 

 

The Wooden Rose

I present to thee a wooden rose milady

But please donít think my gift is shady

 

For have you considered the fineness of the wooden rose

Of the rosesí grand quality not many knows

 

For take account of this strange wooden rose

It is not in the hard ground that it grows

 

The scarlet color it bears will never fade

It is with great skill and dedication they are made

 

It will never wilt, but always be pleasing to the eyes

Just as you my dear are a rare and beautiful surprise

 

The great wooden rose I offer to thee can never die

Just as the love I have for you, which makes me want to fly

 

I know we have only started with this endeavor

But like the rose it could last forever

 

Our love could be as the fair wooden rose

A long love story that shall never close

 

Oh fair Julianna this promise I do make

Our love like this rose, will never break

 

And if we shall never meet again remember the Rose of wood

And remember of a time and place where the world was good

 

 

The Perfect Day

A normal day is like any other, we fall into our routines Go and do that of everyday life, just to get by, just to live and die

An ok day is me at work thinking about you, where you are what you're doing and hoping that you're thinking of me some too

A good day is a phone conversation with you, hearing about your day and what things you had done, as the night grows steady on

A great day is seeing you in a common place just in passing and looking into your Brown eyes staring into mine, being in the same room able to just reach out and touch you

And a perfect day is meeting you in the park, on a sunny summer day, having a peaceful picnic, and a place for your son to play. Running with a kite string, a Frisbee, or a ball looking at the clouds and counting them all. Lying beside you as the hours begin to fly by. And getting caught in the rain as it starts to fall, but just dancing in it thankful for it all. And though there were ants and squishy shoes, not another day would I choose Because this was a perfect day.
