If

If a word were worth a million kisses I’d speak a billion words. If a kiss were worth a billion “fall-into-you” embraces I’d give you a trillion kisses. If a trillion “fall-into-you” embraces were worth a Love that had no end I’d never stop “falling-into-you”. And since I have already a love that never ends…

The Loving Thing To Do

Sometimes the loving thing to do Is the very thing you don’t want to do. It’s as painful to you As to the one you love. Why is that? Sometimes the loving thing to do Is to let go When everything in you wants to hold on tight. Sometimes the loving thing is to hold…

Mother

I thought I’d share this poem, since it’s Mother’s Day today. I wrote this poem for my mom when I was 14. Our relationships had it’s ups and downs and life’s thrown a lot of curve balls but God has truly blessed me with an awesome mom. I really love my mom. I have another poem that I wrote…

A Memory

This is part two of a four part poem that I wrote last week. For now I am only going to post this part. This is a “new leaf” kind of poem. Starting over. Healing and moving on from the past. Waiting. Being patient for God to fulfill His promises and His plans. Dedicated to…

Now I Know

This poem is “the next phase” that I wrote after Then I Knew. (Recommend reading that first.) The last couple of weeks I’ve been in a tumult Because I knew the six months I’d set for myself To give you my final decision Was almost up. As I look back upon these near six months…

Now A Woman I Must Be

This is a poem that I wrote almost exactly three years ago while in UNI–a psychiatric hospital. I was about 7 weeks pregnant with my daughter at the time. It was a very difficult time for me, but I did a lot of growing and processing that was really important too. It does have a little…

A Shatter and A Roar

Over the years I’ve watched my Papa come through a lot of things. He’s passed through a lot of trials. His father was an abusive man on about every level and his choices towards my papa left Papa very broken and in need of a lot of healing. Papa’s had so many reasons to give…

What a Birthday Means to Me

As I think about this time of year and what is celebrated, I think about the One we celebrate, who He is and the hope He gives us. Seeing that His birthday is celebrated by so many this day, I thought it fitting to share this with you.   A birthday is a new beginning,…

The Smile

  This is a poem that I wrote in high school. I was waiting for my typing class to start and this poem was my “hustle” while I waited. 🙂   As I sat there, a frown on my face, A fellow walked by and flashed me a smile. A smile, I thought, those are good…

Winter

This is another poem that I wrote in high school. I had a lot of fun with this one!   I walked complacent as an angel, Down my favorite lane— My heart swelling with pure bliss. When a friend of mine came down a silver staircase, And gave my cheek a kiss.   We’ve been friend…

With God’s Help

This is a poem I wrote I don’t know how many years ago. It’s kind of my nutshell mission statement and goal sheet all in one. With God’s help I can do anything. With God’s help… With God’s help I will have gratitude. With God’s help I will be filled with His peace. With God’s…

Only Six

  I wrote this last year for my oldest son and child.   He’s my oldest, and he acts like it. Watch dog over his younger siblings. He makes sure they’re ok And minding the rules. Responsible for six. Reliable most times. Sure, he has his bad days When he won’t mind. But he’s kind…
