HER SEASON

The last sunset to grace her eyes

Brought her tears of joy

This precious gift of life was ending

In this she had no choice

But, oh, what delight she knew

From childhood to old age

The seasons that she’d witnessed

Blessed throughout her days

***************

And as her loved ones gather ‘round

To pay their last respects

She smiles as each one kisses her

And hugs her around her neck

***************

A whisper, barely audible,

To bid them all goodbye

As her heart stops

And she smiles down

Above from where she flies

Mind Storm… a Christian poem

When I enter the mind storm

For the battle of my life

Eternity hanging in the wings

Deep down inside

Burns my desire

And strength from the King of Kings

Mine is a future

He laid out the path

To follow and trust in His Word

If only this battle

Raging inside

Could be clear – but I make it blurred

SANGUINE… a poem

Image Credit

Float away

Like a leaf on a river

Ascend high

As an ash on the breeze

Dive deep

Like the great Blue Whale

Burn hot

Like lava into the sea

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Be wise

Like the owl in the night

Speak loud

When defending the truth

Forgive completely

When the anger has passed

And laugh like you did

When you lived in your youth

THE EMPTY ROOM… a poem

Once, there was laughter and tears

Here in this now abandoned room

Memories of a life filled with love

But now it resembles a tomb

***********************

Worn down with neglect and broken hearts

Like the paint peeling off the walls

Emptiness fills the voids within

Just as it fills these halls

************************

He made a promise that he would come back

Then one fateful day came the letter

And the love of her life was gone in a flash

As she crumpled inside like a sweater

************************

Little by little her heart found strength

In the need of her sweet children’s eyes

Alas, she moved on from the bitterest song

And let go – with farewells and goodbyes

LINE IN THE SAND… a poem of faith

Image Credit

I drew that line in the sand

But someone wiped it off again

So, I got down on my hands and knees

And drew it back where it had been

Image Credit

No sooner had I turned around

To glare back at the crowd

When someone started laughing

And someone else let out a shout

That line you drew it cannot last

No matter how hard you try

There’s a shadow cast down from a cross

Where Jesus had to die

Image Credit

But in His death, He took with Him

What should come as a surprise

Every sin that’s ever been

Along with every line
