Within my head
Where I often go
To ponder something I read
Whether I am about or in bed
The space is mine alone
To go and just be
You sat there with me, in good times and bad,
Sometimes you were the closest friend, in the natural, that I had.
You supported me when I needed to weep, and
You often held me until I fell asleep.
With you, I would spend time, either alone or with family,
thinking, praying, reading, studying or just dreaming about a future journey.
You always went with me each time I moved,
and because of you my life much improved.
I’d curl up so cozily in your place,
and God would meet me in that space.
He’d talk to me in my head, or remind me in His word, of things He’d said.
It was with you that I learned so many things,
about how to reach out and share my blessings.
You were always there to comfort and hold,
even though you were becoming very old.
Your age made you look a bit worn out,
but in your ability to stand firm I did not doubt.
But then the time came that I had to let you go,
How I’d manage without you, I did not know.
At that time I no longer had the room nor space,
And I let you go on to another place.
Someone else took you in for their own,
and I am sure gave you a great new home.
But I just wanted to tell you that I miss you so,
and wish I wouldn’t have had to let you go.
It may sound funny, but it is oh, so true,
Old Pink Chair, I really miss you !

My mind is racing
Thoughts are swirling in my head
Like leaves in the wind
I hear the sound of your voice
Suddenly all becomes calm

Rude words spoken.
Things untrue blasted.
My spirit angry.
Head bowed low.
Reminded of the Armor.
I read the word.
I pray in the Spirit.
My shield of Faith goes up.
I stand firm in shoes of Peace.
The enemy retreats…

“Think it, don’t say it”
I’ve often said.
Cruel words are better,
Just left in the head.
For when your day is over ,
You will be so glad instead
If you hold your tongue from speaking,
Those negative thoughts in your head.
