Love's Waiting Arms.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

Into the arms of love, I’ll soar

In truth but few have known

Beyond the stars through Heaven’s Door

Before my Father’s throne


I’ll rise as if on eagle’s wing

Above the maddening throng

To where praises the angels sing

And man life’s victory song


First in a cloud The Groom I’ll see

As would a chosen wife

Fully content in love I’ll be

With He! Who gave me life


But now praying on bended knee

For Truth now to reveal

How to save more others like me

Beneath the devil’s heel


God knows alone what stands in await

What blessings will abound

To those Christ love but Satan hates

Who’ll walk on Holy Ground


Within the house, God made to dwell

Adorned in robes of white

While most in darkness burn in hell

The Few will live in Light


Made clean devoid of any crime

Of doubt of foolish fear

Beyond the realm of pain and time

Where love is always near


Life without tears, days without end

Full joy with endless peace

Jesus as King as Lord as Friend

Whose grace will never cease.....

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.
