My God, My Everything!

My God, my Friend.
I love You to the end,
And then
I love You eternally,
Forevermore.
Thank You for loving me
The same…
And more than
I could ever imagine.
Thank You for spending
Quality time with me.
Please forgive me
Of when I cheat You
Of such moments to treasure.
You are my Soulmate!
My Bridegroom.
My Lord.
My Savior.
I love You!

Inspiration: Friends use to challenge me to write a poem about them using the letters that spell their name. This was for my dear friend Kelly who was also my neighbor.
Sadly, she moved away and we lost contact.

He’s My Savior

Head hung low… with sadness so great.

He lifts my chin with His hand and says, “I love you.”

His smile brightens my darkened world.

His eyes tell me I’m special.

His arms are opened to embrace me

And I gladly allow them to.

No matter how bad I feel,

He is always there with a smile,

A hug,

A shoulder to cry on.

He’s the strength of my life.

He is the rock of my salvation.

No matter what I go through,

I know I can count on Him.

Many people can make me smile

And make me feel like I’m loved.

But no one else can make me feel like

They can carry me through it all.

No one can be my Savior like Jesus is.

A lot of people make me feel so much better

With the love, hugs, and kisses,

But no one is like my Jesus.

He is my Friend, my Brother, my Comfort.

He’s my Savior.

Through the Years

Through the good and through the bad,
our share of troubles we’ve had.
Yet, somehow we lay here tonight
and everything seems to be alright.
When the sun comes up and shines,
I want you to say that you’re mine.
And when we are together years ahead,
we will be glad that we were wed.

The Vow

Placing a ring upon my finger,
you solemnly took a vow
to love me all the days and nights
like you love me now.

Well, Honey, let me tell you this.
I love you just as strong.
And as long as you want me,
the vow will never go wrong.

PS. My friend Dawn asked me to write a book of poetry just for her. (I have done this all my life for friends or anyone who asks.) This poem was on a topic she asked me to write because she was so excited about her engagement.

2-6-15 Note to You

Lord God,
Thank You for being so personal,
for always being there for me.
Thank You for being the friend
everyone wishes they had
(and do if they give themselves to You).
Thank You for listening to
my ranting, venting, and complaining.
Thank You for whispering, speaking, and shouting to me.
Thank You for holding me
and emboldening me.
Thank You for helping me
get through each trying day.
And thank You for giving me strength
when it feels like I have none.
Thank You for putting up with
my crying, my whining, and my letting You down.
Thank You for forgiving, restoring, and rebuilding me…
to be faithful, strong, and obedient.
Thank You for loving me,
and for being You!
