Forward (Light Poem)

One step

Then another

Along a path

I did not design

~♦~

My plans

And my control

Are illusions

There are no

Absolute solutions

~♦~

Each day will pass

And each

Will be a miracle

As I survive

~♦~

Buffeted

Beaten

Bruised

and Broken

~♦~

But stronger I arise

Every broken piece

Mended

To make me whole

~♦~

Walking in peace

And in love

Giving of all

That I can

~♦~

A perfect hope

In an imperfect world

A light

Amidst the great darkness

Together (Faith Poem)

This is a time

When we want to be

Together

But we need to stay

Apart

♦~♦

Know that it is

Love

That separates us

In this time

♦~♦

Speak into each other’s

Lives

Even though

Physical distance

Isolates us

♦~♦

We will pray

And praise our God

Together

In the Spirit

As we wait in expectation

Of a better and brighter

Tomorrow

The Fire of Love (Faith Poem)

Playing with love

Is like playing with fire

♦~♦

We can feel warm and cozy

But the consequences can be quite dire

♦~♦

Anyone who says that love is a game

Is certainly a dangerous liar

♦~♦

Love is deep

And has roots like thorny briers

♦~♦

It can be very beautiful and grand

Or as dark and confused as a mire

♦~♦

We have the love of God, our Heavenly Father,

And no love is higher

♦~♦

His love is captivating

Like the music of a lyre

♦~♦

We must guard the love in our hearts

And not lightly grant it to the first buyer

♦~♦

But we can deeply love our Lord

And let our love reach heavenward like a spire
