In The Arms of My Father

 

His gentle arms embrace me

He touches my eyes to see

His gentle push a reminder

Of the person I need to be

 

He sees in me a value

A wealth beyond compare

I do not see it yet myself

With Him perhaps I’ll dare

 

The road I travel now this day

With guidance from above

Is all I need to do my best

Because it’s done with love

 

I pray one day I will reside

Within that heavenly realm

Peace and love and goodness

When our Father’s at the helm

The Battle

 

Greed and Hate took a walk one dawn

To see what they could see

Imagine their surprise that day

When they ran into me!

 

“Go away!” I said to them,

“Your presence here is wrong!”

They smiled that smile that said it all

That said: “we do belong”.

 

I held my ground and cried for help.

I called the best I could.

There was an answer to my plea.

And those that came were Good.

 

Compassion showed and Love as well,

But Tolerance led the charge.

Hope took part and Kindness too,

And Confidence was large.

 

It took us all together,

To banish those with Greed.

This battle fought is never done,

When Evil’s what you feed.

Ripples on the Water

 

 

Ripples on the water

Can take us on journey

That is different every time

From a gentle waltz

Crossing a lake

To a sailboat

Making waves

The water caresses

And moves along

Its destination unclear

We fight for control

Bend it to our will

And perhaps

For a moment

It acquiesces

Only for a moment

The water can be angry

Crashing ashore

Sinking our boats

We thought we

Were in control

The hubris

We are not

It moves us

It entertains us

It gives us life

And it takes that life away

Ripples on the water

Gentle and safe

For now
