He Is Waiting


Beyond the realm of time and sight

Beyond man’s wildest dream

Upon a throne of Fire and Light

The Lord God reigns supreme


Leave for a while the crowded street

All anguish care and woe

Offer a moment God to greet

Quietly say “Hello”


Speak as a child, humble and meek

Inquisitive of love

Call out “My God, The Truth I seek

Through Christ Your Lamb above”


I’ve sought the shadows of the night

Dark caverns of despair

Till sorrowful and heart contrite

These thoughts with you I share 


Forgive the filthy life I’ve led

My selfish wayward path

The evil done the evil said

Lord save me from Your wrath


Reveal Your presence Ancient One

Let grace no longer hide

Allow me live with Christ Your Son

Where darkness can’t reside


Whilst still a wretch of former sin 

My prayer was not in vane

By grace of love planted within

Today I’m born again


I feel my Saviour’s love for me

No longer will I stray

I know my God has set me free

To walk Your chosen Way…..

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
