        Change of View

My unmet list of wants is long,
And just as long my face,
Which hangs beneath where I belong
Uplifted by Your grace.

Ungrateful as I am for gifts
Bestowed on me each day,
I ask for more and widen rifts
With words I use to pray.

When I look down upon my list
With dark, dejected eyes,
It's plain to see my eyes have missed
Your glorious bright skies.

Yet, every morn You send Your hope,
The Son spreads light for all
To follow and no longer grope
In darkness from our fall.

I thank you for the hope You send
To change my point of view,
To take my needy heart and mend
It back to be with You.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
