The Sweet Life

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 crave for
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.
