The fire within my heart never seems to dim
Nor will the sparkle in your eyes go away
Its radiance will never find itself replaced
By the sunshine which finds my face each day

Soothing are my dreams of your lovely eyes
When you leave for work going away from me
Yet, your image completely floods my mind
As your smiling face is the only thing I see

I feel your heart’s call as you think of me
Feeling your love within each breath I take
While within my daydreams I dance with you
Not wanting them to find a way to dissipate

The purest treasures I find within my life
Will only be found alive each day in you
As the most beautiful acts of love, I see
Find continued life in everything you do

And within my heart, one will surely find
A soothing flame which never seems to die
For it’s always fed as each moment passes
By the alluring sparkle found in your eyes.

When I became totally disabled, I would
always watch my wife as she left for work
and I would be inspired to write about the
sparkle in her eyes which came to life each
new day… 2011.

MY SWEET RIVER OF LIFE

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

A single moment in time
Where lives share the
Same space

Where energy intertwines
Forming soothing breaths
Destined to stay near

Spirits dance together
Though so very far away
They remain so close

In the treasure chest which
Adorns the heart’s chamber
Deep within

And love is renewed in a
Once timeless place cradled
In Gods loving embrace

As memories flood the night
With majestic soothing and
Alluring rhythms

And life becomes a key
Part of a pearls wisdom
That lines the dreams
Which nestle in our mind

As one reaches out to
Touch the eternal peace
And everlasting joy

That comes from a single
Breath of anointed love
While a mind comes to
Realize

That it has always known
You, and tasted of Your
Succulent honey

Which fills my soul with
A sweet desire which has
Stayed from beginning
Times

As by your hands a lasting
Home was formed deep within
My soul allowing me to always
Hear their words and prayers

Because I was formed for
Your pleasure to bring
Happiness to the halls
Of Your heavenly kingdom

And I will always in my
Mind, heart, spirit, and soul
Belong to only You

I hear songs from long ago in
The villages of the Near East,
Asia, and the ever flowing Nile
River in Africa

In the jungles of the Amazon
And the mountains and plains
Of the Americas, and the old
And beautiful land of Europe

In Jerusalem Your holy city,
In the Middle east and all
The places that continue to
To share the voices of my
Ancestors

For I still hear their rhapsody
Of melodies which make their
Songs at home deep within
Me, that they at another time
So enjoyed

And like them, I always belonged
To You, so very long ago in another
Time and place

You will always be my exquisite
And timeless beginning and also
My sweet river of life, my Lord,
My God.

John 4: 13-14
Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water
will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water
I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I
give them will become in them a spring of water
welling up to eternal life.”

Nehemiah 9:6
“You alone are the LORD You have made the heavens,
The heaven of heavens with all their host, The
earth and all that is on it, The seas and all that
is in them You give life to all of them And the
heavenly host bows down before You.

Proverbs 8:22-31
“The LORD possessed me at the beginning of His way,
Before His works of old. “From everlasting I was
established, From the beginning, from the earliest
times of the earth. “When there were no depths I
was brought forth When there were no springs
abounding with water. “Before the mountains were
settled, Before the hills I was brought forth;
While He had not yet made the earth and the fields,
Nor the first dust of the world. “When He established
the heavens, I was there, When He inscribed a circle
on the face of the deep, When He made firm the skies
above, When the springs of the deep became fixed,
When He set for the sea its boundary So that the
water would not transgress His command, When He
marked out the foundations of the earth; Then I was
beside Him, as a master workman; And I was daily His
delight, Rejoicing always before Him, Rejoicing in
the world, His earth, And having my delight in the
sons of men.

WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR LOVE

Tags

, , , , , , ,

Each morning as my eyes softly awaken
I find myself falling in love again
As I silently gaze upon your lovely face
I feel as though I am seeing heaven

When you lay here quietly beside me
I realize you are a special treasure
One which takes my very breath away
Whose beauty is a priceless pleasure

And there is nothing you can ever do
Which will ever cause me to turn away
When all you have to do is say my name
The rhythm of your love makes me stay

Unhealthy times may come into our lives
But with you beside me, I’ll stay strong
For I always want to be very close to you
Forever locked in your embracing arms

I thank God for this beautiful blessing
Which He allows daily in my life to stay
Reminding us we’ll always be one together
For in our lives, it won’t be another way.

“To my best friend, my wife.”

PRAISE HIM

Tags

, , , ,

Sing praises to His name
For He alone is worthy
Of our true and genuine
Praise

Let the songs of happiness
Which spill forth from our
Mouths have their beginnings
Deep in our heart’s well
Where His love lives

Trust in His love and He
Will never fail you or
Leave you to suffer, for
Great is His amazing love
And much greater is His
Power

Sing to the Lord with all the
Gladness found alive within
Your heart while coming before
Him in daily thanksgiving and
Prayer

He will do all that you ask,
For God is a loving God daily
Ministering to the spiritual
And material needs of His love
Ones

Sing praises to the Lord our
God, for He alone is worthy of
Praise from our lips…forever.

But He hears the prayer of the
righteous.

statutes; I will not forget Your
word.

A BEGINNING MOMENT

Tags

, , , , , ,

If I ask you to sit down a moment with me
What would your reply to me sincerely be
If I smiled your way very affectionately
What will your heart choose to feel and see

If I framed the moment that finds life today
Filling its canvas with the glow of your smile
What would you do, might you turn from me
Or the chance to embrace something worthwhile

For sweet beginnings will always be open doors
To the one who is unafraid to take a chance
Will your mind and heart decipher the message
Embracing all the clues in a sweet tender dance

If I said hello to you in a very modest way
But with a sweet gentleness alive in my eyes
Will you ask me to stay a few moments longer
Without ever questioning the real reason why

Would you step out in a great leap of faith
Throwing all your caution to the four winds
Becoming unafraid to tackle what is unknown
Giving the chance for genuine love to begin.

THE OPEN DOOR

Tags

, , , , , , ,

The Open door calls out daily to many hearts
Yet are your ears receptive enough to hear?
Who is blessed among you to look past self?
Who has gazed within without shedding tears?

Who has the spiritual vision to recognize the key
The only One who can truly open up the door
Who is obedient to His soft-spoken voice of love
And when they embrace His blessing will be sure

He awaits many calling out with each passing day
Finding only a few who truly search to believe
Even as his Holy Spirit speaks to their hearts
Many still choose never to embrace his pleas

Before you, each morning lies the one true way
The One door whose reward is long-lasting grace
You only have to open your hearts and minds to Him
To receive His pure gift of genuine lasting faith

So you can embrace His blessing of eternal salvation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Isaiah 22:22

“Then I will set the key of the house of
David on his shoulder, When he opens no
one will shut. When he shuts no one will
open.

Matthew 7:7
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek
and you will find; knock and the door
will be opened to you.

EVER THANKFUL

Tags

, , , , , ,

As this morning calls my eyes to open
Leaving me to feel your joyful presence
You lift my mind into very high places
As my heart is now embraced by Your love

It gave birth to a million radiant smiles
And just as many blushing childish grins
While the very first thing that came to mind
Was to thank You for letting me live again

And I could hear the soft gentle pattering
On my window as the rain began to fall
And even as its voice was speaking clearly
I could hear the blessing of Your loves call

And as all living things began their dance
Joined together their voices rose up to pray
Happily thanking you Lord for another chance
To send out from their hearts sweet praise

I thank you, this morning for the reminder
Which always assures me Your spirit will stay
No matter whether one is truly good or bad
You give many of us another chance today

My heart joyfully embraces all of these thoughts
While bringing a love song to rise within as I pray
And along with my spirit, they give birth to a psalm
Thanking you lovingly for another very special day

To seek you out again with open hearts and arms
Again feeling the spiritual hunger grow inside
As we bathe anew in your sweet blessing of love
Realizing that last night we could have died

EVERY TIME

, , , , , ,

Each morning when the dawn awakens me
I long to hold you dearest so very close
I want to embrace each beautiful moment
Letting you know who I love the most

For I find each new day you make better
While chasing the remaining darkness away
Causing a radiant smile to come from the sun
Leaving a special happiness longing to stay

Every moment your smiling eyes embrace me
That time becomes the best part of my day
For my heart deeply longs to hold you tightly
So this will always be the prayer I pray

To God, I will promise never to leave you
As my heart beats for you alone each day
I will remind your heart so very constantly
You are the treasure I want always to stay

Goodnight my love!

THANK YOU LORD

Tags

, , , , , , ,

Each morning we rise up before You
Never taking for granted what we find
Knowing it’s only by Your amazing grace
Inside our lungs your breath we find

And as we open our eyes wide to You
As rays of happiness alight our faces
We are filled with certain tranquility
we will never find to be displaced

For the light within shines brighter
Than the radiance of the new day sun
And our hearts are lifted by Your grace
Pointing to the place our faith has won

For even though all we see around us
In this world will soon turn to dust
There is only one thought that moves us
To live eternally your love is a must

For only you alone could give to us
A blessing we could never earn
And only by believing in your grace
Another day in our lives returns.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We can never take anything in life for
granted so I thank God for the blessing
of life, he gave to many, allowing
many to open their eyes this morning after
the Hurricane passed our way in Georgia,
yesterday, last night, and until this morning.
And may God bless and welcome the spirits
of the loved ones who passed yesterday with
His amazing healing grace and love.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 28:7
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
my heart exults, and with my song I give
thanks to him.

UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

Who will wipe away my many tears,
As for my dear love one I now weep
Who will be there to help me rest easy
While at night I try to fall fast asleep

Who will embrace me ever so tightly
Or who can ever take your place,
Who will say my name like you did
Placing a soft smile upon my face

Where are you now my sweet flower
When I need you most in my life
Where is the sound of your laughter
That always made each day so right

For my eyes grow tired from weeping
And my knees are weak from prayer
And I cannot let go of what I lost
When you were taken away from here

For every time the door bell rings
Or the telephone announces a call
I jump in expectation with a hope
That from my life you did not fall

And yet still my mind grows weary
As I once again try to fall asleep
And I can’t let go of your memory
When your image my heart still keeps

….until we meet again.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Written while watching
the events, and seeing
the loss of many on 9/11,
Dedicated to those who
still deal with the pain.
God bless!
