Sung in a Song

Words come to mind as in a song
Whimsical movement beat is long
Rhyme takes hold now fitting the tune
Voice sings a gentle quiet croon
All who hear the words of surprise
Some you can hear their quiet cries
Story told - sad turn of events
About young soldiers lived in tents
Cold and hungry they fought the war
Protect their country as they swore
Truce has come loud gunfire has stopped
White flag between them now is swapped
Words come to mind sung in a song
Senseless war ends - soldiers are strong

Grace Touched Me

Emotions tangle with the inner gates
brings one to a realization what is to be
with lingering momentum of stale memories
from years gone by, years of miscalculations

Strength opens a gate to new horizons
gives promise of change, promise of renewal
bright visions consume another gate
again, lighting up ones path of assurance

Faith penetrates the soul highlighting
the inner core that controls ones thoughts
settling the unruffled to become smooth again
new sensations now becomes joyfully entwined

Love of ones own mind and body
brings determination of what shall be
for all the twisted tangled webs
shall be of the past as grace touched me

 Season’s Cycles

 Summer has left us
Autumn is soon to come
Winter is snowy cuss
Spring takes forever for some
Each season excitement brews
Some like warmth of sun
Our season we can choose
Others what cold has done
Swimming is now gone
Leaves fall from branches bare
Snow is cold beauty yawns
Buds prepare for their grand flair
Birds return awaited nests
Seasons all anew
They will wait for their guests
Beauty came for me and you

 You Bring Me Joy
 
My heart sings of You
Not of man, but of You, Jesus
You bring me joy
You bring me salvation
Without You in my life
Of singularity, I would be lost
Thank you for taking care of me
Thank you for your love
 My loneliness is far easier
To bear with You by my side -
As I need not cry no more

Friend in Silence
Dedicated to ~ Flyman6213, Long Island, NY
 
Suddenly you came to me
it seems in my most desperate hour,
now the inner healing has begun

Silent words scroll across the page
words not so much of wisdom,
but words of silly joy
 

Alone was I searching for a friend
longing to share my worldly thoughts,
searching for someone to care

Silent words scroll across the page
words not so much of learning,
but words of silly laughter

 I look for you to share with me
my thoughts and feelings for that day,
for I know you shall not be my judge

 Finding my friend in silence
has filled an empty space,
sharing simple words in silence…

makes me smile

My Heart Believes

Your breath whispers words
projecting loves light
shining upon thee
brings one a warm glow
to a longing heart

Promising love
joy stirs within
renews lost hope
with words spoken

Trust in you
a true heart
comes to me

My love
I share
 
Grows!
