SILENCE

The silence is deafening Where the secret lives It mocks and scorns Taunts and poisons Weaves the lie The fault is hers Here is where The menace moves Salivates to confuse Here in dark And shadows deep Perversion awakes The innocent weep The moon is full Alighting bright Illuminates The room at night But still [...]

All I Know of You

Let Love……

Your love. Deeper than the darkest ocean. Touching my depths. Healing the wound that came when hearts turn away from you. Healing the hurt I never knew owned so much of my soul. It has to be deep, love,  to go down so far. To go down into the lost places. lost hope. lost love. lost sight. [...]

SLEEP, BABY, SLEEP

The silence is a lullaby that sings me into peace. And yesterday is quiet now as past, it is deceased. No longer, can I hear the sound of the howling of the pain. The heartbreak just a passage to my life now wide-awake. Awake to joy where sorrow loomed. Awake to hope, swallowed the doom. [...]

Temporary Things

These temporary things These light afflictions Can’t compare To the glory found in me When I walk through this valley On my knees Wielding sword Or quietly trusting Both are in me Wreathing in pain Yet crying out in victory You’re never going To leave me So I will rest like Babe on breast Love [...]

HOPE

You are my Comfort in the howling wind The Steadfast of my heart within You are the Promise I am clinging to When the Liar weaves his tale untrue Hope against all hope You are Light in the deepest dark You’ll be In laughter or in tears My heart will declare God You are good, [...]

I don't want to climb a ladder I want to sit across a table Look into your eyes And commune with your heart No desire to scale a mountain But a garden, cultivate Be fruitful in strength and mercy Arms in jubilance with babes Sing into the midnight A lullaby of faith In God alone [...]
