Our Thoughts And Prayers Are With You…


Our thoughts and prayers are

 with the officers who’ve fallin.’

They served a higher duty.

  A higher callin.’


We pray that God will speak

 his love to their families too.

We are thankful for them and love

 them for all they do…


Much thanks and gratitude

 have already been given…

They brought duty and honor

 in the way they were livin.’


We ask you Lord…

 to give  them more of your grace

May your light shine on them and keep

 them in a special place!


We don’t clearly know why things

 happened that particular day…

Through the sorrow.  We ask God to make a way.


A way that will make

 his goodness very certain.

To the many lives of those who are hurtin.’


May you dear Lord, touch the hearts

 of the Lakewood police.

And grant unto them a double

 portion of your peace…


We’re forever grateful for their

 service and dedication…

And give to them this poem with

 a heart of appreciation!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
