At Sunrise

Sunrise

I wrote a poem today inside my head,

It’s positivity chased dread.

It’s words uplifted and carried,

Those dreary thoughts that tarried,

And freed my mind to see,

The joy awaiting me,

In a new day,

Where I may,

Start new!

True?

Slipping Away

Fading red rose

Each day you were here

Your presence

Envoked me to cheer

But now I’m trading

Cheer away

Fragrance fading

Color growing dim

Life ebbing

Losing all your vim

I am losing you

Never more

To be within view

With a tear in my eye

My sweet rose

I bid you goodbye

Your petals I’ll keep

As they fall

Like tears I weep

Two Words

Two Words, Hope, Despair

I shot a cruel word into the air

Hitting the tablet of a heart

It crushed and laid it bare

I shot a kind word into the air

With loving thought and care

A hope and dream it did impart

Rhyme

Words have power to destroy or build up.

Think before you speak.

A Golden Rose

Gold Rose

This little flower wasn’t in the garden of a queen,

Or even in a place where it might be seen,

Yet it was beautifully dressed,

Looking it’s best, as if blessed,

Bringing joy where it dwelt,

Sharing fragrance with any who smelt.

Oh that I, daily might try, to be

An affinity, in similarity.

Facing Fear

Overcoming fear, man jumping over a rock of fear

For many a year

I lived with my greatest fear.

Controlled by his power,

I used to cower

At the thought of leaving him.

But as my eyes became dim,

I had to make a choice

To listen to him, or another’s voice

Who was telling me

From this fear I had to flee.

So as God held my hand,

I made a stand!

I faced that fear, told it to go.

It stared at me, and it said “NO!”

Knees shaking, I dug in my feet,

I was determined it to defeat!

I stood my ground,

New strength I found,

To conquer fear’s intimidating frown,

And make it shrink,and back down.

And then with God’s power I overcame,

I crushed that fear in Jesus’ Name!

Difficult Day

Sunset Victory

What can I say,

About this day?

If my wish were a horse,

I’d have used force,

And just galloped away,

Have my way, and not stay.

But determination won,

And I didn’t run!

This day was not fun,

But now it’s done.

I didn’t give up!

I drank of its bitter cup,

And I came thru,

Battered ‘tis true,

A bit worse for the wear,

But I don’t care!

I didn’t taste defeat,

And Victory’s so sweet!
