The Old Man!

THE OLD MAN!

The old man’s clothes were tattered and torn - He had weathered many storms since he was born - the child came and took him by the hand - and said it is time to go home, I will help you stand - you have done your best it is time to take your rest - the old man said can I stay a little while longer - I am sure I can make it and be stronger - pulling his clothes together - He tried to look spry - but there was a tear in his eye - life had been  hard and beaten him down - the child said I don’t want to see you drown - there is something better for you - just beyond the horizon out of your view - trust and believe and walk into the sunset - for I am here to take your place - and run the race - for another year - is coming - bright  and sparkling - as we say goodbye to the old and welcome the new ……

 

Happy New Year!

God’s abundant blessings on all!

About the Poet
I was born in Lexington County, SC. I lived in Jacksonville, Florida for many years.I recently moved back home to my home town, Columbia, SC. I have one daughter, Kimberly. I now have two brothers. One went to be with the Lord in January, 2010. My Mom went to be with the Lord, Memorial Day May 28, 2012. Among the things I am grateful for and remembering about her is my salvation. She was a strong passionate woman of God all of her life and a beautiful loving Mother. I was saved and baptized in the ocean in Rota, Spain. What an experience that was! Holy Spirit chased me and drew me to Himself, while I was alone in another country. I surrendered to the Lord, and His peace flooded my soul. It was so beautiful. I am so happy he saved me and redeemed me. I am so happy to share these poems from His heart and mine. Poetry is a release and has inspired and encouraged me and many who have read my poetry. I was blessed to write for a number of years on Crossway Publications and had over 300 poems that I wrote on the site. God has increased my gift with more beautiful poetry. In 2005 my poetic writings seemed to catch the fire of God and have a deeper meaning. I thank God for this chance to share my poetry with all. God Bless...
