Contagious Love
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



You've raised the bar on aging

With your infectious smile

Mother, your love is contagious

You've gone the extra mile.


In each of your discomforts

There's hardly ever a fuss

Your way of doing business therewith

Is such an appreciative touch.


The fender bender mishaps

Or should I say the floor

Have not broken your spirit

You still bounce back for more.


Your humor is not hidden

But lies in wait for a chance

To utter those funny sayings

That suit each circumstance.


Once again that smile

With twinkle in your eye

Beams forth satisfaction with

Giving a courteous reply.


Your beauty is astounding

For it's both without, within

Your spirit is victorious

For you trust alone in Him.


In Him I say Who raised the dead

In Him who gives old age

And then in glory "Eternal life"

May Jesus Christ be praised.


All glory to that Father, Son

The Spirit who live above

Who bless our hearts with demonstrations

Of His Contagious Love!

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
