Holding All

Holding all in my hands
Feeling your strength and power
At my command.

Journey long, journey far
See the beauty
In a single rising star.

Dark And Dismal

Dark and dismal is not the way
Open up, laugh and sing
Chase the gloomy clouds away
Bask in the sun filtering thru
Release your heart
See the beauty coming

When I Think Of What I’ve Done

November 28, 2018

When I think of what I’ve done
I wonder how this could be?

I’m a mortal, no one special
But still I see this beauty
Coming from within of me.

Then I realized
That God has given me
All that I am
All that I can be.

He does this with us all
The sunset, the whispering tree
Even that nasty insect
Which bit me on my knee.

God is within us all
And I’m glorified to know
He’s forever within of me.

Before The Light Begins To Fade

Before the light begins to fade
See the beauty in all you survey
Let no small thing be overlooked
As you feel your heart pounding
In a life lived with gratitude
Giving all
No matter what comes to be
This, I think
We need to see.

Please Let Me

Please let me

Be friendly
Not bitter nor condescending
Let me see beauty, dignity
In the world that surrounds me.

Please let me

Give help
To those that need
Strength to ones
Who are weakened.

Please let me

Show vision
To those whose minds
Are imprisoned.

Please let me.
