"Yesterday's Thoughts"

Yesterday I thought of you,

A thought that I won’t forget.

A thought I will always cherish,

For it was a thought of your loveliness.

I visualize your pretty eyes,

As brown as they can be

For they are always on my mind

Because they belong to me

I also think about your kiss

And there is something about your lips

For such a kiss would be surely missed

If not for your two lovely lips

But as they say dreams are made for fools

But i find it's not really true

Because your vision occupies my dreams

And all my thoughts of loving you.

You were born into this world for me
And for all who live that would believe
You appeared among all your creation
So from our sin you might set us free

Never have you ever charged a penny
For the living words which you would speak
Even though you appeared in the flesh like us
You never coveted wealth or sinful greed

Your hands reached out to all you met
As many hearts in this world you sought to lead
You never tried to profit from the poor and widows
But freely much in their hearts you would leave

You never chose to have much materially
Though everything In this world is yours
But humbly you came and lived among us
Enriching us with the grace you kept in store

Many always claim in you they believe
But from others they seek to take away
They want to be another’s lord and  master
Leaving many destroyed spirits along the way

I only want to be Christ like in my dealings
For in my life there will never be another way
I want them to see what its like to live humbly
With your true spirit teaching them every day

Remember me my LORD, each day as I rise
While by your sweet spirit I am truly led
Permit me to always be humble like you
And never please forsake me my daily bread.

For my time is very fleet in this world’s life
And before by your grace I am called away
I want to help bring your light into this world
So many might find life humbly following your way

The First Time (I Did Speak Your Name)

The First Time ( I Did Speak Your Name)

Early morning finds me
lying awake within my bed,
thinking of all the moments
what I did think, or what I
didn’t think I said.

On how my life changed
so tremendously, how it
never again would be the same,
from the very first time I saw
your brown eyes, from the
first time I ever said your name.

Your name has become
a source of strength to me,
lifting me up on high each
day, even now when your name
falls from my lips, I will still
never be the same.

And what I want to express to you
is that I really love you so,
and there is never found
a moment that passes, where I
would no longer want it so.

For to speak your name from
within my heart, while framing
it in words of praise, it's easy
to really understand the love I now
feel, still comes from the first time
my heart ever spoke your name.

"Continuous Praise"

In the morning
when I rise ...
I will rejoice
in you.

I shall praise
you LORD, for the
life that is still in
my body.

I will sing a new
song of joy and
love to you
who sustains me.

I will trust in you
and only you
throughout the day.

For so many times
in my life my judgment
has failed me, leaving
my life in confusion and pain.                                                                                                                              

But in your judgment
I will rest secure, and
peace will fill my mind.

For you can do all
things so I know
and believe that
you will do...
what is best for me.

And I will praise your
name throughout the
day from morning until
the night, and from the
night until the dawn...

"In Need Of Your Love"

My heart longs for you Lord,
to feel your Spirit around me,
to feel your hand touch my
weary, aching bones.

I am not worthy of your love
for I was born in sin, yet I am
truly dead without your love,
and my life’s moments seem
so alone.

I long to hear your song at night,
to see your brightness in the morning,
to praise you Lord for life and the
ability to truly love another.

I thank you Lord for each new day,
where I am able to thank you
from the deepest parts inside my heart,
And tell you how much I am in need
…of your love.

"Life's Light"

We leave the light of life in the beginning
We leave the joy that places a smile within
He is with us as we come stepping
Through the darkness into a world of sin

We begin innocently loving all around us
But soon the world grabs us from all sides
When we begin to learn and feel life
All of our senses become so alive

And in our mind we hear two voices
Two essences seeking our hearts to sway
One who will lead our hearts back to the light
Another to many dark and foreboding days

We experience daily an abundance of  things
And from each we must choose a way
For with each a path will lie ahead of us
Where some are found or lost along the way

We find each day we are tempted
With so many worldly and material things
Causing our minds to become so twisted
By the unholy wares of this worlds sin

We find the evil that dwells among us
Is seeking daily many of us to slay
Especially If we choose the wrong path
Allowing our feet from God’s light to stray

For there is a promise that is sure
If we  choose to follow the enemies ways
That we will surely die within our sins
An exact penalty if we turn away

For this was promised us if we strayed
When Adam and Eve's lives first began
Those fatal moments when they were tempted
To move from the light as they began to sin

We have a choice to make this day in our lives
Choosing between the  two voices we daily hear
We must be extremely cautious and  careful
To listen hard with our heart and both our ears

We must be very attentive with what we desire
Being careful with what our hearts may seek
Knowing that once our words escape our lips 
They will no longer be ours alone to keep 

For our spoken words have certain powers 
Like the one who is sentenced to die
For with our words we can lead another to life
Or cause many to lose hope and  faith  inside 

If we want to really live our lives fully
Reaching the true potential of our dreams
Then we must learn to humble ourselves
Letting self die before our eternal  King

Surrendering self In all we do and say
before the sight of our living God
Rising as a new creation of His grace
Becoming full of His all empowering love

Pray hard your feet will never stumble
Over the rock that will cause many to fall,
As we daily keep our ears and hearts so open
Listening day and night for His sweet call 

For His spirit is the only life saving power
That can lead one’s heart into His way 
Guiding new believers spirits into His truth
Enriching Everything that they hear and say

For once you allow sinful self  to die
In Christ Jesus  your spirit will surely rise
His love will lift you up to stand on your feet
As His living word will open your heart and eyes

He will light your daily path before you 
Helping you if you even stumble or fall
Never leaving your Spirit alone or lonely
And for you He will always be on call 

And when we find the darkness of night to come
As you hear that soft  sweet tender voice  
When  you close your eyes to go to sleep 
You’ll rest easy knowing you made the right choice

For you will hold His treasure so tightly
In your heart never letting it to escape
Finding there will never come a time again
Where you will not feel His beginning embrace

The one that you felt when your life began
The one that for a while you did not choose
But never did He ever leave your side
Because His sheep, He chooses not to lose.

"In The New Beginning"

I have sought you fiercely with
The fury of  thundering raging storms
I have sought you often so desperately
As a beggar roams the city seeking food

I have sought you in a material world
Where sin abounds so greatly
I have sought you as a lost child
Crying for his mother’s embrace

For I have great need of your strength
That only you can adorn me with
I have great need of  your great love
That only you can fill within my heart

Let me taste of the final reality Lord
That my heart may find its final comfort
Knowing that whether alive or dead
I shall always be with you…

Smile upon me Lord and listen to my words
For even though they are only my thoughts
They are true jewels to adorn your garden
Which is In heaven above

And with every hungry moment of time
I seek you to eat my fill of your Word
That forever will become my crown
And your love my reward in the new beginning.

You came to me
One day in the

As a young tulip
That does bloom
In May…

You came into
My world with
your brightness

And since that
Moment I am
Not the same…

For the happiness
That now fills my
Day never existed
Here before

But I know now
This love shall always
Be, and will last

"With Your All"

While I am away from you
When we experience lonely times
If  I call you on the telephone
Will you quickly pick up the line.

Even if for some unknown reason
That you might be mad at me
Will you still answer the telephone
So quickly if my number you see

When the hours of this day we know
Pass us by my dear ever so slow
Will your heart now truly hunger
For the love that you alone know

If I call you now on the telephone
Will you quickly answer the call
Reminding me always one true thing
That you still love me with your all.

"Happy Valentines Day"

As beautiful as you are
you make the sun cry
when he slips away at sunset,
because he does not want
to share your beauty with
the moon and the stars.

You make the night a joy for me
when you kiss my lips and I
fall fast asleep dreaming…
of your beauty,  your kiss, and
your smile,  and I sleep so

When I rise in the morning
I find the essence of your kiss
is still upon my lips,  and I feel
the fire of your love’s desire,
and of the flames that always burn
within you heart.

And you are so wonderful
to be near,  very tantalizing
to touch,  and so  amazing
to know…

For you still take my breath away.

"All The Years Of Your Life"

Find a wife this day and love her
All the years of this your life
Cherish her young beautiful smile
That can light the sky like a star at night

Care for all the things that she loves
Love the things that are her hearts needs
And there will never come a time
That without her love you will ever be

Take the time to learn her personality
For its worth its weight in gold
Value her special touch of warmth
And you’ll never want to let her go

Love this precious love of yours
Whose smile could light the sky at night
Cherish and love her young warm heart
All the years of this your life.

"You Were Waiting"

I sought to flee from your sight
Yet there was no place I could go
In this world where you did not
Call home

As high as my eyes could see
As low as the deepest seas
There is nothing  Lord that
Is infinite, for where it ends
You are…but where your
Spirit is it has no endings…

And I sought to flee from your  sight
But your hand was always upon me
And where I was, you caused me
To have a profound need of you,
Because where I sought to be…
You were there waiting.

Meant To Be

My heart does beat much faster

whenever I see your face

and my soul just fills with laughter

whenever we embrace…

Each day has become so much better

than any day that we have shared before

While moments have become so priceless

that their treasures we now covet more

And why is it now so very obvious

To all who stop near us glancing to see

that as a couple we are tied together

In a special way that was meant to be

"A Love That Still Endures"

First your smile did enchant me
Then your eyes made me question why
That moment when we first had  met
Why my heart did burn deep inside

I could not believe what happened
And my lips were afraid to say
How long I  had really waited
For just a small moment of your day

And though it seemed a flashing blur
That quickly came and went
So worthwhile was the moment
For the time was so well spent

We became a part of each other’s life
A blending of love that was so pure
And a feeling that day became love at first sight
That after many years still endures

"Morning Song"

When I see you in the morning,
my heart fills with the notes
of its soft melodic morning song.

For it is one of my most precious
joys to see your eyes, as they open
touching and filling my world.

For as I see your eyes open,
I see the quiet bliss of loves
soft serenity, and the tranquility
of its deepened joy.

I feel the flames of its love
as they engulf me, making me to
grow  in desire, making me to yearn
a little more for your love.

For they touch my heart and soul,
releasing the power of an infinite
force, so that my heart can withstand
this new source of happiness

Because when I see you, I see love
as a young rose blossoming in the
summer sun, and I know that
I will always love you.

"The Beauty Of A Smile"

A smile has so much
beauty my love, when
it adorns your face,

with the glow that is
found to be sister,
to the suns soft
radiant rays.

For such joy is found
to be within, this
smile that I daily see,

For what really makes it
so special, is that you
smile that smile for me.

And only the very best
ingredients, will make the
smile to shine so bright,

As what is found bright
within your tender smile,
could even light the
darkest sky at night.

For a smile has so
much beauty for the
naked eye to see,

If the smile belongs
to my one true love,
who smiles her smile
for me.

"Accomplished By Your Love"

I have felt the tender bliss of your love
As your eyes have always been upon me
Sometimes I turned to lust after earthly things
But from your sight I could never flee

When I realized the evil I done before you
I yielded my heart and spirit in faith
For my tongue did cry out to you alone
Asking you to forgive my fallen state

And the many times in life I had fallen
Doing what was wrong before your eyes
You Lord, gracefully lifted me up
From the bed of sin in which I would lie

I am surely blessed that you have always loved me
For many times you could have turned your face away
I am blessed to be the recipient of a consistent love
Who no matter what happens, never turns away

But as you have spoken in your written word
When you said “Esau I hated, but Jacob I loved”
My heart humbly bows down before your face
Knowing it was all accomplished by your love.

"Awakening Love"

My heart awakens each day with a song,
that I do recite happily for my King.
A song of love, a song of praise,
because he means everything to me.

And on my knees I recite the words,
before his heavenly throne.
And lovingly he accepts what is spoken,
knowing that my lips are never done.

For he saved me from a darkened pit,
from sinking into a tormented hell.
He became a ransom for me to his father,
and now my heart to all must tell.

About his goodness and  tender mercy,
of his mighty grace which set me free.
How he saved  this lowly sinner,
giving him all that he would ever need.

And that is why I will always sing aloud.
about the Salvation which he alone brings.
How in my life each day He is everything,
And  he means more than the world to me.
