We Are There

As I sit in a nice warm home,
I think of those without.
They have a heart and feelings,
But they also have a lot of doubts.
They think they’re alone and that
No one has or will ever care,
But little do they realize that
Jesus Christ has always been there.
Even though they may be down,
And have a lot of grief and pain,
Jesus will see them through everything,
Whatsoever be, over and over again.
As I remember how I am so blessed,
I remember this one thing too.
If Jesus Christ Our Lord loves them so,
Then I will also say, I love you.

Trying to Remain Serene

In valued time, I grew in maturity.
And now they are all so sure of me.
They think they know me so well,
But as one cliche says, time will tell.
My heart is strong, I’ve learned through the years.
So why do they want int it now, I alone shed the tears.
They say I have a lot of pain, I have good sense.
All the hurt made me healthy, it gave me experience.
To tell dishonesty from the depth of truth.
The love I’ve had and will need is in my youth.
God is the only love or need I entice.
I can only share a little more to be nice.
I must keep my sanity and remain serene.
And if they’ll leave me alone, my pain can’t be seen.

Prayer; O God

Oh God, keep us and bless us.
Help us to endure the sorrowness love can bring us.
To rejoice in the exceeding kindness love can give.
Have mercy on us and keep us from the ungodly lifestyle.
We shalt forever give praise to Thy name.
May we someday soon come to Thy glorious kingdom.
Amen.

Living In Fear and Hope

Today, tomorrow, who knows when
This world will yet come to an end.
Living in fear of life itself is enough.
But to worry about fire, storms, and war is tough.
Does anybody care about life at the least?
Doesn’t anybody want to live in peace?
I know I do, cause I want to see the sun.
Of all the pain love brought, I want to find the fun.
The joy of waking in his arms each day.
And when I’m upset, a soft voice to say, “It’s ok.”
To see the day when we join together,
And tell the whole world we are forever.
To see the beautiful children we will create.
To see all that would be just great.
I want to see what I can make of my life,
Knowing I had to be extremely careful with each strife.
So if you’re listening to me, tell me what you feel.
And if you feel the same, tell me something real.

Such a Pretty Day

The pine trees have such a pretty green.
Pretty colorful leaves lie on the ground unseen.
Pretty oranges, light greens, dark greens, and brown.
And such a pretty green grass covers the ground.
Such a pretty shade of blue mixed clouds, catches an eye.
You feel so warm as they pass by.
Figures come to the eye, clouds before the storm.
They seem to ruffle, causing waves to form.
Higher in the sky is the bright shining sun.
Yet also the moon is seen, seems kind of fun.
Saturday is such a pretty day, it warms you so.
A peaceful and calm feeling comes, one I didn’t know.
Children laughing, parents amusing, so good to hear.
With such a feeling, it’s like heaven is just so near.
You almost feel like the world is so nice.
But today is special, with peace as the spice.
With the sun warming your skin and hair,
You let your mind wander, you’re in mid-air.
It’s such a pretty day.

O God, Bless All the Children

O God, Bless all the children and keep them safe.
Be with them as they learn the things in life.
May their hearts always love.
Keep them from despair as much as possible.
In replace, let them receive all happiness and joy
In the love we receive from Jesus Christ Our Lord.
Amen.
