Days Mixed with Emotions
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



Days come mixed with emotions,
We can't escape that fact.
Dwelling in self-pity,
Is a self-destructive act.

I've made mountains out of mole-hills,
Majored on the minor.
Often been to Worryville,
Been mean when I should have been kinder.

I've been down on myself,
When I should have been looking up.
I've seen the glass half empty,
When I should have seen a half full cup.

How gracious of our God to give us,
A friend in times like these.
To give us a lift in our spirit,
To help us in our need.

Praise God for those who know us,
That have understanding of,
Our present situation and,
Still surround with love.

But the friend that sticketh closer than brother,
Is the One at the end of the day.
That comforts us in our trials,
In a unique and mysterious way.

He knows the path we've taken,
He's seen our heart response.
That Great Physician gives prescription,
For our needs and not our wants.

That remedy now taken,
I've come to Him in prayer.
I've laid my burdens at His feet,
Worshipped Him while there.

Now as I lay me down to sleep,
I praise Him once again.
The One who saved this poor lost sheep,
Is Sure, the sinner's Friend!

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
