Into Your Presence

 

Pull me into Your presence Lord

For each day I love you more

I want You to know that I believe

I want You to know it’s You I adore

 

You say take courage for all is well

You’ve laid out my path and my way

You’ve planned my every moment

You say only to carry this day

 

For You I will fight all my fears

You place me in the depth of Your love

For You have wiped all my tears

And from hereon only look to above

 

I belong only to You forever

For Your love burns inside me

Like a father with a newborn babe

You protect and safely guide me

 

I know You will not fail me

You have prepared my way

Your glory overwhelms me

More love poured out each day

 

I Belong to You

I Belong to You

 

II am giving You all my precious King

I can’t be without Your beauty any longer 

You give me love, You give me hope

You make my spirit stronger

 

I am finished chasing empty dreams

Running down empty trails

Your love breaks down all obstacles

Your glory never fails

 

With You the darkness disappears

I am captivated by Your light

As the sun brightens the universe

And the stars shine through the night

 

Hidden from Harm

 

You have hidden me under your wings of love

You have given me protection from harm

I sit sheltered from all of life’s misery

Safely I sit in Your arms

 

You pull me out of the schemer’s nest

You rescue me from my foes

You plant me in a place of protection

You care about all of my woes

 

What can I give you to thank you enough?

How can I make Your heart smile?

I will sing of Your love forever more

I will worship You even in trials

 

I bless you my Father, I love you dear Lord

I will never tire of Your ways

You have made a clear path for me

You have blessed me with mercy and grace

 

Hope Whispers

 

Hope whispers through the wind and lands like a gentle dove

Hope lifts the dreariest head and fills its soul with love

 

Love falls softly on longing hearts, ever waiting to adore

Love gifts the soul with her beautiful touch ever giving more

 

Joy joins the ones who seek God’s truth no matter what the season

Joy to all who seek righteousness; who follow God with reason

 

Faith builds a home on solid ground, lest the tempest come

Faith fills the heart with peace when life’s dangers surely come’

 

Kindness flows from deep within a loving, giving soul

Kindness when often given, leave one feeling whole

 

Jesus stands so patiently, gently rapping at your heart

Jesus comes that we may know His love and never be apart

 

I could close my eyes and make a wish, upon a little star

I could think and wish and wish and think, I’d find you, near or far

I saw your eyes, I felt your heart, beating within my spirit

The more and more I wished and waited, the further I felt, not near it

If I believed in magic, I’d have thrown pennies in the pond

I’d make wishes off of old bridges, I’d have bought a magic wand

I would seek to learn a magic spell to bring you by my side

I stare the heavens, waiting to spy a star falling in the night

I’d blow my candles, wishing that this birthday would bring you

I’d avoid the neighbour’s black cat as she meanders as she mews

I’d always carry the rabbit’s foot that daddy bought when I was eight

I’d never leave the house out from a different door or gate

I’d throw salt over my left shoulder, I would always pass on the right

I’d put lavender on my pillows; avoiding sidewalk cracks day and night

I’d rub a lamp for good luck, I’d drive the same route every day

I’d keep my elbows off the table, I’d see the psychic to learn the way

But truth be told, although charming thoughts, these don’t really work for me

I’d rather say my prayers each night and count each blessing that I see

I thank God above for all my loved ones, I pray blessings at each days end

And I know that God’s love brought you to me, my beloved, my friend

 

Medusa

Medusa

 

Medusa, Medusa, where is your head?

Perseus now has it, now you are dead

Turned to stone; all who looked on your face

 Statuesque testimonies to your hideous gaze

 

Vipers slithered and fought as your life-draining hair

Too ugly for even your own monstrous stare

You defiled your own being with your jealousy and hate

Your demonic self-love driving your own ill-born fate

 

Though born beautiful, your jealousy raged

In a fit of betrayal, Athena’s weapon was waged

No longer a maiden of beauty and lust

Now a reflection of evil, that turned all to dust

 

All the others who knew you longed for your death

Aspiring with Perseus to plan your last breath

The battle was set: with wings, shield and sword

Gifts from the gods, your death their reward

 

The atrocious remains of your head rest on a shield

Athena the barer, you’ve become the weapon she wields

No further hatred from your mortal, volatile soul

Now a remnant of mythology, and ugly, dark troll

 

Paper & Pen

With paper and pen, I sit here again
Searching for words of my soul
Each line an expression of moments in life,
A story of mine to unfold

Stealing sweet moments, from days of my youth,
I smile as I write the sweet memory
Or drowning in Blackness as I script my despair,
The days that are covered in emery

Whether increasingly difficult to write of my hopes
Once a treasure I held by my side
Or more easy, its counterfeit slips in to rob me
Despair wooing me as her bride

I live in this world of my words and my ink
Each fresh page opportunity calling
Endless potential to frolic or cry
To soar like an eagle or keep falling

This pen draws you to me, joining our hearts
To know this spirit so broken, so pure
To share my joys and my struggles alike
Your prayers perhaps my only cure

So pray on my friends, read of my life
Read of my smiles, my battles, my tears
Your friendship invaluable as the paper and pen
That allows me to have you with me, right here
