Suddenly There's You
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

     Suddenly There's You

“What did I say what have I done?

What way did I pursue?

However far I choose to run

Suddenly there is You


Suddenly always, You’ll appear

No matter where I’ll be

Turn right turn left and without fear

Your presence there I’ll see


What excellence was my intent?

What thought concerned my mind?

What good for man did I invent?

That life in You I’d find


Through crying, laughing, joy and gloom

You’d stick to me like glue

I’ll lock myself inside my room

Where suddenly there’s You


My life my breath is in Your hand

My eyes are trained above

Yet still I fail to understand?

The reason of Your love


You chose me steeped in wanton lust

You touched my heart of stone

You rearranged this heap of dust

You changed this flesh and bone


Suddenly eyes once blind could see

Suddenly truth was found

Suddenly sorrow aimed for me

Fell harmless to the ground


I’ve hope I’ve faith I’m saved and blessed

My life will see no end

How can the world these facts digest?

Her knee she’d humbly bend..…

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.
