I Miss You

I miss you Like the earth when it’s dry For want of rain. I miss you Like the trees when they’ve lost all their leaves And are covered in snow. I miss you Like the stars when they’re alone in the sky– They don’t shine as bright. I miss you Like clouds on a dark,…

The Prayer of the Ballerina

  The ultimate prayer Is one spoken without words. The one with soul uplifted, Lifting to the One on High, The One Unseen To man’s mortal eye The deepest longing, Or searing pain Or most exquisite joy For which no words Can find purest utterance. ‘Tis one that goes beyond words To something that far…

Abiding Love: the Foundation of the Future

Each day is an anniversary Of the time I gave myself to you— All yours to keep forever, always, Through the love and power and peace of God. Each day seems like a miracle, A miracle of God’s love. I look into your eyes And see Him shining back at me. Now I can say…

The Measure of My Creation

My Beloved, To you today I give my heart, My hands, my feet, my soul— All I am and will become Are yours to have, to hold. First by God and then by you My all is wholly owned. I desire you to feel and know My deep abiding love That from my heart and…

Finding You

  Sometimes, lying in my bed at night I long for that gentle touch That will guide me to the light. I often wish I could see your gentle face, Hear your sweet, loving voice Speaking to my trembling heart. I long for that warm embrace Taking all the pain away. I sometimes long to…

Ashes

I look at these things, Symbols of the ashes of the past— Even some a few days old. Old comforts, Longings, hopes and dreams. Fresh heartaches, Seeping, bleeding heartbreaks Still steaming and sizzling In the fire’s flames. They haunt me round the room, From under the bed they speak to me, Reminding me of what…

Will You Still Love Me?

Will you still love me If my ears are pierced And I have tattoos and a toe ring, Shiney and smooth? Will you still love me If I drink and cuss On occasions when life is hard And I don’t know how to cope. Will you still love me Even though I’m so lost, Though…

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…
