A Touch Of Love

A touch of love can mean so much
To a weary traveler
Who's felt the pangs and pains of life
And feels so insecure
In life's disruption's floundering
Just doesn't know where to turn
And feels a great abandonment
From those to whom he yearns

And a separation of love
Can be the most devasting
When there's no one else around
To feel the that real heartbreaking
So love...yes love...has binding power
To heal a broken heart
Just an arm around a friend
Can be the love to start

So don't hold back from giving it
It's free there for the taking
God has blessed us with His love
True compassion in the making
He knew the lonliness we would feel
When sin has had it's run
And offered up His great love
In the giving of His Son

So if you feel alone today
Thinking that anyone doesn't care
There's a shoulder here to lean on
God will meet you there
Not a problem that He doesn't know of
That you are presently going through
Come to Him though heavy hearted
He can lift the load from you!

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

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
