About the Poet
I am 64, a born-again Christian, and didn't write until 1974. My mother inspired me to write poetry, from an early age since she developed a deep love for poetry in my life. However it took years before I tried to write. My favorite subject to write about is my Savior, Jesus Christ, and religious subjects. I reside in Cleveland, Ohio.

You Saw Me


You saw me Lord still running scared

Still skulking round with fear

Not knowing if You lived or cared

Not knowing Truth was near


You saw my tears in the rain

My soul sodden with shame

My heart lamenting hell’s refrain

Yet still You called my name


I heard my God but paid no heed

Believing all was well

Till someone gave Your book to read

Showing my way was hell


Revealing hell and Heaven true

The devil realm is real

What sinners through Your Son can do?

To win life’s great appeal


I did my God what’s written there

To Christ I bent my knee

Learning He chose my shame to bear

By dying on The Tree


I’m free my God through Christ Your Son

I’m saved through blood divine

Through love my worldly battle’s won

And endless life is mine


I live I live but not in dread

But full of joy unknown

No longer am I walking dead

Filthy and all alone


I’m cleansed by grace through Jesus pure

I’m rich beyond compare

I’ve strength such peace to all endure

And all Heaven to share.....
