Eyes to See


Once of the dark torment in pain

Now Jesus’ bride in white

I’m safe I’m sound and will remain

Forever in The Light


Must I explain how life has been?

Describe my selfish death

How Jesus called to join His queen

And gave me Heaven’s Breath


Suffice to say I’m born again

Through Jesus’ blood I’m free

The devil’s snares were set in vain

For through God’s Word I see


I see the beauty of God’s smile

When love is on the wing

The strength to walk that extra mile

When wisdom’s song we sing


I see how Heaven’s blessings flow

The grace to understand

We reap in life but what we sow

The might of Jesus’ hand


I see that gold that time’s not ours

That love is not one’s own

The foolish trust in lofty towers

That pride falls like a stone


I see true beauty’s deep inside

That vanity’s absurd

That God alone can turn the tide

By power of His Word


I see these things because of Christ

True love was on display

When He for me was sacrificed

So I may live today…..

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.
