True Love Waiting

True Love Waiting

 

Till now death’s dread has failed to cease

Life’s brought as yet no cure

But as for me enwrapped in peace

My future’s more than sure

 

Regardless how you think or feel

Though shadows may appear

Though life as yet may seem surreal

Jesus holds you dear

 

Always He’s close always at hand

Always with love divine

Take heart my friend and understand

This perfect love is mine

 

Given by grace constant and free

Whilst still in shameful sin

Salvation came to visit me

To help me victories win

 

Imagine wisdom at your door

Envisage perfect love

Guiding, working making sure

We rise to life above

 

When last on earth I close my eyes

When deep in darkness laid

I’ll rise complete in Paradise

Through Heaven’s promise made

 

Like Christ my King Jesus my Lord

Potent pure and true

Brilliantly made, perfect restored

Joyful I’ll stand anew

 

I know through love what love’s about

I know why Jesus died

So rise like me cast down all doubt

And pray True Love inside.....Till now death’s dread has failed to cease

Life’s brought as yet no cure

But as for me enwrapped in peace

My future’s more than sure

 

Regardless how you think or feel

Though shadows may appear

Though life as yet may seem surreal

Jesus holds you dear

 

Always He’s close always at hand

Always with love divine

Take heart my friend and understand

This perfect love is mine

 

Given by grace constant and free

Whilst still in shameful sin

Salvation came to visit me

To help me victories win

 

Imagine wisdom at your door

Envisage perfect love

Guiding, working making sure

We rise to life above

 

When last on earth I close my eyes

When deep in darkness laid

I’ll rise complete in Paradise

Through Heaven’s promise made

 

Like Christ my King Jesus my Lord

Potent pure and true

Brilliantly made, perfect restored

Joyful I’ll stand anew

 

I know through love what love’s about

I know why Jesus died

So rise like me cast down all doubt

And pray True Love inside.....

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.
