Forever and Ever



Far and beyond the teeming norm

Beyond the great unknown

Beyond the cloud above the storm

Life sits upon His throne


Beyond all time further than space

Beneath the depths of all

Is He who died with saving grace

For all who err and fall


I felt the touch, tremendous love

The glow of Light divine

The Breath of He who dwells above

Who’s awesome love’s now mine


Should I such warmth such grace deny

Renounce this Gift so sweet

Believe instead the same old lie

And wallow in deceit


“Arise! Arise!” I heard His voice

“Arise and face the dawn

Make here my Way your life long choice

Obey and be reborn”


Touched was my soul my heart of stone

Aflame I felt within

With shaking limbs and bellowing groan

Free was my life of sin


True Light has come darkness has gone

Heaven my soul has blessed

Promised am I when all is done

To find with Jesus rest


Eternity without a tear

Sorrow doubt or pain

Living thriving without fear

To fall from grace again.....

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.
