The Sweet Life
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Christine Tate
Other Poems by Christine Tate


Pastries made of marzipan

are certain to tempt you,

and surely fill a sweet tooth

with a cavity or two!

Chocolate covered cherries,

pastel petit fours,

creamy nougat candies

luscious melted smores...

Confections are delicious

but please make no mistake,

if that is all you dream of

you'll get a bellyache!

Live life to the fullest

in the lap of luxury,

but you'll be back for more

to fill the vacancy!

Indulge in  your cravings

gorge yourself with treats,

but for lasting pleasure

Only Jesus makes life sweet!

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
