Itís wonderful to show we care

How love oneís life can change

Yet when such love we try to share

Itís often seen as strange

As something never felt before

As something never shown

What aching hearts have long yearned for?

But yet have never known

To have, what one has never had

To feel loveís warm embrace

The world is yet so awfully sad

And such a big disgrace

She needs to look around sometime

Consider pain in view

To end at once her evil crime

As God would have her do

When Jesus comes, its such relief

We turn our gaze on high

When hurts have gone, and all oneís grief

We break with joy and cry

At first, we fail to understand

Amazed, we wonder why?

Such love is found at Jesusí feet

With heart and soul we cry

This new found love we canít contain

We need to give it out

In summer sun or pouring rain

Thatís what itís all about

When hurt, thereís always need of love

To seek, feel, find and see

I know just what Iím speaking of

For one of them is me! Ö..

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.
