I wonder

Your words stir up my heart,
With a longing to hear more and more of you
Now that I’m hooked
I wonder,
Will something greater come out of this?
Will something more grow out of this?
Or my heart will hang on this loose thread?

It cuts into two
I should hold on a little longer?
Should I let go?
Could it be too soon?
Could I be holding onto a shadow?

I remember your word,
Filled with promise and hope
Yet waiting is so hard,
And everything else seems to be on a rush
What should I do?
I wonder

Forgotten Garden

Forgotten Garden

Beautiful green valley,
Was its name.
With a river running through it,
Showering it with clear waters all day long

Full of life,
With lots of butterflies
flying around it
That was my garden.

The valley lies dry,
Covered in dust
As though no water
Ever passed there.

The green beautiful
Garden is long forgotten

A New Song

A New Song

I feel a new song in my heart,
A song of thanks giving
And praises, to only you my lord.

All that I am,
I owe to you,
And all I have
You have provided
Unto me.

Sorry for the lost times,
When I did not appreciate you

Sorry for the times
I have praised myself over you
Thought of;
Am good, smart, powerful
I deserved it,
I have earned it,
And filled myself up with pride.

The true colors of love

The true colors of love

What’s the color of love?
Red, green, Pink, Yellow,
May be the rainbow

We buy Roses, Chocolate, and Jewelry
In the name of love,
With a sweet beautiful card.

Yet remained selfish, Irritable,
Not willing to let go of the ill manners,
Or even forgive those who hurt us.

When you say love,
I want to see truth,
Patience, Kindness,
Faithfulness, Forgiveness
and perseverance

For those are the
true colors of love.

Envy

Envy

Many are the times
I have wished
I had what others have

Many I don’t even know
what to use them for
Or even where
they got them from

Thank God,
He never granted my wishes.
Thank you for protecting
me from myself.
Thank you for saving me
from the troubles of this world

And now Lord,
I ask you;
Please take this crazy
desire away from me.

Take it way,
Before I hurt myself.

Please forgive me

Please forgive me

Forgive me oh Lord,
For I have not been good to you.
I have ashamed your name
And sinned against you
in uncounted times

My mind has not been pure,
It’s covered with sinful thoughts.
It’s like a market place

My tongue,
Instead of praising you
Says a lot of bad things
Some against you,
Some against your creations
And judging them in my own ways
Please forgive me

My body has not been any different,
It’s not a temple good enough for you,

If I was to cut off each part
That leads me to sin..
Not sure which one would remain
Please forgive me

I have angered your spirit,
With my thoughts,
Speech and actions
And I don’t deserve you’re forgiveness

I can’t ask you to judged me
For your so perfect and am not.

Am asking for forgiveness,
In your mercy, love and grace
I really need to be your child again.

Waiting

Waiting

As I wait,
Every minute feels like
a million years

I get so impatient
Much as I would like to see
your will be done as you promised

I get so tired of waiting,
Yet I know yo word is true
And I that this about myself

Give me the strength to wait
A hope to face a better tomorrow
And a greater hope to see
your promise for my life

Give me a song
To remind me that you’re God
That you care about me
More than I can even imagine.

And as I wait,
Let that song be played.
