No Praise Heard From The Grave

I love you and

The words did

Dance upon my

Tongue as they

Were spoken

And such joy did

Overwhelm me as

My spirit praised

Your name

For it is so satisfying

To be able to praise

The living Lord while

I am yet alive…

For no praise is heard

From the grave when

We depart nor are any

Word’s spoken.

Promise Me

Promise me your tender love,
to always be near to me.
Promise me that the dream I dream,
will also of yours now be.

Promise me a kiss each day,
and a warm tight hug each night.
promise me that when its dark,
you’ll provide my much needed light.

Promise me I’ll never see,
a sad or lonely day.
promise me I am what you need,
so much in every way.

An assurance is what I really desire,
So can you please now give to me.
Your most dear and holy promise,
That from my side you’ll never  leave.

You filled my heart with
Heavenly rhythms, that  I
Hear while I sleep at night

Touching the deepest parts
Of my inner being, while
You fill my mind and heart
With your spiritual insight

And through the darkness
I am  made to see,  the life
Light that's there for all
To receive

If they would only open
Their spirit and hearts,
While reaching out their
Hands calling out to thee.

For My King

My heart awakens each day with a psalm,
Which I will joyfully recite for my King.
A psalm of tender love, a psalm of praise,
Because he means everything to me.

And on my knees I happily speak the words,
Before his presence on the heavenly throne.
And lovingly he accepts what is spoken from lips,
For he knows that their melodies are never done.

He has saved me from sin's deep darkened pit,
And from sinking into its tormented hell.
He gave his life as a eternal ransom for me,
And now my heart now each day must tell.

Of his goodness, love and tender mercies,
About how his loving grace has set me free.
How he saved a lowly sinner from certain death,
Giving me the blessing of life I would always need.

And that is why I will always tell the world
About the Salvation He alone does bring
For in my daily life , he is my everything
Because he means more than the world to me.

The Love I Know

The winds of Winter
Have begun to fade,
As well as all the cold
And frost it did bring…

And I find now my heart
Sits alone yet contented,
Pondering what new you
The Spring will bring to me.

For in our lives there
Are some changes
Where some feelings
Fade and others grow…

And I sit back in great
Expectation for  the
Blossoming, of the only
Love that my heart
Does know.

Lost to my eyes was the morning sun
When to this day I did arise
Dark clouds hovered high above
As showers shared my skies

And my world was dark and miserable
With my heart much like this day
For you were far away from me
Yes so far from where I now lay

It was so very hard for me start
All alone to face this new day
For usually I start it off with you
With the little games of love we played

And yet its so very hard to do
As I got ready to go to work
For I am always a part of  you
But loneliness so close now lurked

Its tentacles tried to entrap me
Placing lonely doubts into  my mind
I tried to overcome my inner thoughts
But they overwhelmed me time after time

For lost to my eyes was my morning sun
This cold day when from my bed I arose
That  Shakespeare could not even capture
My mood in sweet succulent lines of  prose.

You Are

My love You are a God of
great mercy, a Lord of
great love, a King of great

You were before all
 thoughts were conceived
of the dream Gods of men

You were, when the universe
knew no sin and all did
praise and glorify Your name

You were, the life of all
that was and Your life was
of the Son, and the Son
was of Your life

The Spirit was of You Lord,
for He is Your power
and the power of the Son
Woe be to him that dares
to separate by mouth with
blasphemous words, The Father,
The Son and the Holy Spirit

For how can he that has not
knowledge, speak on He who
has all knowledge?

How can he that is with sin
disregard He that is without sin
as not being a  reality?

How can he, who can only create
corruptible things that do not
last, destroy that which was
created by an unblemished God
and not suffer the wrath of his anger

Because of his corruption
he will die...unless he calls
upon the Lord Jesus Christ
to intercede for him

Forvever More

You came to me 
in the 
 the early spring

As a young 
tulip beginning
to 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
world, never existed
here before...

And I realize now 
right at this moment, 
what we now share
will last forever more.

So Consistent

The bliss of the spring

Is like your love,

So refreshing to the mind

The warmth of your love

Is like the sun,  so pleasing

All the time

The happiness of your word

Is like a deep well,  Which to

One’s spirit gives needed strength

The realness of your love

Is like the sky, always near

And so very consistent.

"Inside An Outward Change"

Inside there is another world
One which most cannot see
Where a fierce battle has been won
And one who once was a slave
Has now been set free.

The fallen  chains were visible to
Most who live, for visually
They could see all the outward
Signs, even though they had
Never taken the time
To view their own world
That lived inside themselves.

For many are so very handicapped,
Far from the perfect state
Which is theirs to own.
For unless they have grabbed
Hold of the message their
Inner being continues, running on empty
And in their lives they are ever alone.

For we are more than outward
Flesh and bone,  with features
That other eyes can see,  we are
More than descriptive traits that causes
Hate from those who claim to  believe.

But nothing is hidden from
The all seeing eyes of
The only true living God,
For He has seen everything
That we have done taking
Note for that special time.

But within the beating heart
Of the surrendered soul
An Oasis has began to
Grow,  being watered daily
By a living word showing
Outward change so others know.

That there was something
Special that happened, and
Something beautiful had made
Great change, and if they but
take the time to listen,  they too
would embrace the grace and
power that is only found in
His name.

"On My Mind"

The thought of You
Fills the empty
Void in my mind…

And in my heart
I find that You are
So alive, and that only You
Can fill the emptiness…

And I cannot control myself.

No one or anything
Can ever displace Your
reality from my mind,
Or from my heart
Where it does now

Am I obsessed?

For the true reality
Of you being with
Me stays so vivid…

So that even if I tried
My heart would never
Allow me to erase...

Your reality from deep  within.

For Your reality is
Such a golden one,
That I will daily endeavor
To bring it forth...

From within my heart
And mind.

And i will try to make every
Moment last forever
Whenever You are not
Near to me, because of my
Love for You.

"Always Be So Near"

My world was touched
by His hand, and its
loneliness was chased

Into my world came
such spiritual happiness,
and much more a need
for His love to stay

He taught me to love
my fellow humans, and
to love His Father first
of all.

He promised me if I
did all these things,
never hard would be
my fall.

He filled my heart with
an all believing faith,
that He promised I would
always keep

He told me never to
doubt again, for He
would always be on
call for me

He gave to me sweet
treasures that with
others He allowed me
to share

And He promised that
Even when I would
Sleep, that He would
always be so near.

"A Daily Love"

Your sweetness adds
life to my day, and your
word brings substance
to my bones

My soul is healed
of its sinful scars
by the mighty power
of your spirit

I can attest to the
wonderfulness of
your love, for daily
in my walk with you
I am blessed with its
loving essence.

And my day is made
so complete, because of
your completeness,
which has made me

And I am thankful that
the grave has not yet
claimed me from this

That I might still praise
you, everyday while i
am alive, all the days of
this my life.

"I Will Love You More"

I loved you so very dearly,

Long before I knew

Your precious name

For whenever I would

Find myself sitting close

To you, much higher would  

Leap my hearts burning flames

And certain feelings would

Overwhelm me, which I never

Shared with my heart before

And I loved you strongly with

My heart yesterday, but when

Tomorrow comes, I will only

Love you more.
