Jesus you are mine
Forever in my soul now
We will meet again

You are my Savior
Resting in the waters
Living within me

Peace has overcome
My days seem not so long
I seek my future

You shall come again
Your company I desire
Take me Lord with you

Living that you give
Delight is for tomorrow
Unspeakable Joy

Fill me with your love
For all around to see it
Let them see you friend

Teach me in your ways
So that I might share it Lord
They need to know you

Go, you have told me
Tell them what I know for sure
For eternity

Two Hearts

Two Hearts

It is a journey
Soul searching
You must go inside
To the depths
The core where deep fear lies
Only some can take us there
Because only they can bring us back
Changed with new respect
Closing our eyes to feel
Determination and perseverance being the rule
Understanding that our path may not be chosen but given
One which is filled with things that many may not see
Eyes that were given to few
These words cannot tell the story
One can only live it
A gift given
Dancing laughter
A life
Protecting ourselves from the inevitable
The loss and flight
Gratitude and release
True tenderness
Two hearts
Forever linked

Rode Freedom

where people see you as one, but you are so different
The image is not theirs but is soft, and kind hearted
you notice the things around you
moving freely
The wind is in all directions
The smells
honeysuckle in the spring
soft rain in the summer beating from the asphalt
burning leaves in the autumn
winter brings the scent of snow
colors during the day
bright and vibrant producing it’s own kind of rainbow
at night a sense of protection blanketed over you
calm and peaceful
your own thoughts
a Zen like quality
the smile, the wave, the nod
a sense of belonging
where you go has no direction because it takes you
you can see the world, you can sense the feeling, and you can breathe the air
for you are intertwining souls forever

Ancient Oak

The stories are many
they cast a tale of times past
when the soldiers walked
the soft earth beneath their feet
the tree framed in beauty from the window
times not forgotten
how they leaned upon it
looking for strength to go on
a house where the comforts of food and drink were available
a porch to rest
someone to look out for them
rank had no meaning
for this place was a sanctuary for those that needed comfort
do not come on your horse
do not think you are better than those around you
your soul is no different
we all hurt
we are all tired
we all crave the fight for righteousness
we all believe
what? says the man who looks to his left or right and does not know whom he fights with
he has lost his soul
the vision is gone
never forget the one who is beside you daily giving his life for yours
man has in his heart to do what is right even if it is his life he must give
Ancestors now
the fight goes on
the soil just different that's all
the lives still lost
the comforts still missed
perused over carelessly
the tree still stands
the house maintained
lovingly cared for
adapted; practical
the porch still used for summertime bliss
spring nights of soft rain
and a ghost or two mingling
for preservation

The Oyster

My shell is rough
nooks that run deep
a tell tale sign of protection
the elements are harsh at times
barnacles of times sad
the sand that soothes me on the outside
now irritates on the inside
closed tightly secure in what I know
words of kindness help
each word cleaning the outside layers
cleansing on the inside as well
each day a new layer to soothe my discomfort
I am transforming
It may take years for me to learn
placing my trust not only in those around me
but in myself as well
heeding what is said without thought
brought to that day when my shell is opened
tenderly held lovingly knowing what is inside
eager anticipation that the years have changed me in a way I could never know
what emerges is beautiful
porous to still absorb the elements from around me
shiny stunning each layer perfectly laid to create a magnificiant piece
I am unique like no other
my color a different hue than any
my shape rounded like my soul
as I roll around in the palm of your hand
I am comforted in knowing you helped me to be something I could have never imagined

Tomorrow is Tomorrow

I'll give my best to you
I say here's what I can do
You give me peace of mind
That's grace undefined

Your all I need
Your all I need
each day is forward stepping
Your all I need
Your all I need
Tomorrow is tomorrow.

The clouds move past
Their silent waves
casting a dim shadow
The darkness looms
but do not fear
The sun is never far

Your all I need
Your all I need
each day is forward stepping
Your all I need
Your all I need
Tomorrow is Tomorrow
