Sweet Marriage of Love

Sweet Marriage of Love


Cascading fountains crystal clear

No diamond could replace

This unknown joy I’m feeling here

Comes through The Father’s grace


Through Him! True love’s far from hollow

Daily we watch it grow

Where Jesus goes I will follow

Where Heaven sends I’ll go


Our perfect love’s like bubbling streams

Our courtship’s ever sweet

Our marriage beyond wildest dreams

Just knocks me off my feet


Both hand in hand and cheek to cheek

Our lives melt now as one

Comforting when I’m down or weak

Just like the warming sun


Nowhere on earth would I belong

Nowhere wish I to be

But in these loving arms to strong

Where wondrous love runs free


Within His hands I’m safe and sound

His smile sets me on fire

In all creation no love’s found

That fills each desire


Sometimes I fail, yet ere I fall

Before I come to harm

So swift I hear His gentle call

And feel His mighty arm


Eternal bliss arrayed in white

With peace beyond compare

Enraptured to this life of light

With endless love to share.....

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.
