My Passionate Vow to God


As long as you love me, I can

no task is too great or too small

not by my own power, but yours

I can, as long as you love me


I'll speak for you because of love

for every day I live and breathe

your love for others, I will share

because of love, I'll speak for you


you instilled this passion in me

this desire I have will not die

I'll love and serve you all my days

this passion in me, you instilled


one day -  I'll see your smiling face

my mind can not comprehend it

oh, what a day of rejoicing

I'll see your smiling face one day!

Author's note: Thanks to the inspiration of Reason A. Poteet, this is my first attempt at a swap quatrain.

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
