Pour Me some love

I wanna be giddy with it
Till I feel alive
You know I’m stuck on you
Revive my glory days
I wanna bloom
Beyond this gloom

My roots go a mile
In search of water
My thirst runs deep
My many fingered roots
Burrow here, there and everywhere

Searching, searching…
Water, just a drop please
You know how I like it
You know how I need you

I’m all fenced in
Can’t go nowhere
I’m rooted here
It’s dark, it’s dry, it’s killing
This living ain’t working

Revive me
Touch me
If you are there
If you can hear
Reach out….

Water my soul
Pour Me some love
Starve my quest
Quench this thirst

Water, water
Love, sweet love
Pour Me some love

POEMS

Suddenly

Let’s not even discuss it, I can’t find the words
You ask me why I trust him
He was there when the suddenlies came
When the billows started rolling
Right in the midst of my serenity
When the thunderstorm came unannounced
On my bright sun shiny day
When all was right with my world
And it suddenly tilted out of balance
Spinning me around like a puppet

I couldn’t figure out why
It didn’t make any sense
Have you had one of those suddenlies?
The kind no one understands
No one can help, Too gone too fast
Others have experienced it too
I have heard their stories
He only had a cold that won’t shift but the doctor said he was at stage four
And must prepare to die
She married the love of her life
The wedding was the talk of the town
And now she can’t have any babies
They were just passing by
They decided to help the lady
Now they are under fire. She said they are the culprits
They lost everything in one day

Have you ever had a suddenly
Which you couldn’t explain to no one
It is during such times
When the unthinkable happens
That we look for the friend
The one who sticks closer than a brother
I thought my end had come. I yelled and screamed in private
And smiled so bright in public
My heart was bleeding raw. I almost lost my mind

Can’t believe it happened to me. This nightmare I had to live with
I longed for some refuge. Anything to stop this terror from swallowing me whole
It’s easy to succumb to despair. When you are nearly half dead
Beaten down by a suddenly That you can’t even explain

The suddenlies don’t care who you are
Their waves will pull you under
The world will stand amazed. When they see the mess you are in
They will snigger and berate, Your excellencies of the past
Forgetting that those suddenlies Can visit any one they choose
But if like me you’ve come through
Rescued by the Lord
He was with me in the pit. Even when I didn’t know it
He pulled me out to safety And ordered my speedy recovery
How can I not trust in him
It is really not subject to debate
He flips it around for me. Bringing joy out of despair
Renewing my strength, Setting my feet on stable ground
Giving me Beauty for Ashes

You ask me how I know it’s him?
It is in the middle of the fire, when no one can help
That’s where he introduces himself
Wouldn’t have heard him any other way

Who refuses the strong hand of help
When no one else can help?
I know him so well now but He has always been here
Standing silently by
How can I not trust him
He has nothing to gain, I have everything to lose
He rules over the suddenlies, That makes other powers shake
And he turns it around for me
How can I not trust him?
He is King over the suddenlies
And I am safe with him

POEMS

Shadows Of Heaven In My Path

image

 

 I look around this realm
Searching for hope
The certainty that change is coming
I look in the faces close by
They echoed my own disdain
Each wearing that wistful look
That desperate one that says
‘We know there’s more to us
This reality feels like a dream
From which we can’t awake’.

We cry out into the open air
Hoping the wind will carry our voices
Across the oceans and the hills
Though acrid deserts and thick forests
To the place where it all began
We pray without knowing we did
We appeal to one we cannot see
Not even sure if anyone can hear
We cuss out loud when we get nothing back.

We never ever think to look up
Oh no, that’s just a fairy tale
We are dealing with real life
We have no time for abstract things
Like a big grey haired man up in the sky
But when we have no where else to look
We raise our faces to the skies
We close our eyes and pretend we are 2
We make a wish and say it’s on a star

But It is a prayer from the heart
It’s filled with innocence unspoiled by life
Built on hope that there’s someone up there
Who can hear us and grant our wish
We plead with heaven while on our earth
We state our case to the rainmaker in the sky
We cross our fingers and hope not to die

We are jostled back to reality
We open our eyes
And everything looks the same
But deep inside we feel a change
Hope is alive, we feel reborn
To stand again, where we once fell
Everyone prays when they are up against the tide
Perhaps not to the man in the sky
But to the one we hope can hear our plea
From deep inside where we can’t lie

And maybe one day, we will believe
That love made us and love is God
And when all else fades away
We find ourselves back where we started
Standing naked in our childlike faith
Appealing to a love greater than us
Begging not to be denied
Our requests genuine and bare
Are answered by the one who loved us
Way before we existed in this realm
We finally know that we are known
Beyond this reality which is but a dream
God is real. He heard that prayer.
And now we believe
Heaven does cast shadows in our paths.

POEMS

Grace

image

I feel surrounded
By a force greater than I
Sometimes it whispers in my ear
And tells me fantastic things I Am
It takes away my deepest fear
And floods my being with passion true
It unites me with my better me

I once asked; ‘who are you, really?’

It said ‘I am Grace, I am Spirit’
Sent to All who try so hard
To reach beyond their present selves
To fulfil the universe’s Aim

image

I Am Connection to the Divine
I am enablement beyond your reach
I extend your grasp towards the skies
So what seems impossible to some
Is freely available to you
In Spirit, in Inspiration

image

I Grace you with that which I am
I am everything you deeply need
Nothing is impossible
For those who believe
To those who reach out and yearn
To them I am, that, I Am

I am Grace beyond your failures
I am inspiration that inspires
I am energy all around you
To bring you to the good you seek
I am thought, word, idea, desire
I am passion, decision, fortitude
I am wisdom beyond your years

image

I am not hidden, but only seekers find
If you believe I am there, I am
I will sing your inner song to you
I distribute the universe’s gift
I am Grace, unmerited favour
To all who seek, I say I am

POEMS

Thank You

image

Thank you
For slamming that door in my face
If not, I will have walked right through
To the life I thought I wanted

Thank you
For leaving me with no options
It meant I couldn’t go wrong
No matter how hard I tried

Thank you
For rejecting my plea
My Genuis did not please you
I had to look in another direction

Thank you
For making me feel so small
It made me see beyond myself
To find what was hidden from view

Thank you
You are the reason I found out
That strength comes out of brokenness
And beauty rises from the ashes

Thank you
You shattered my dreams
You woke me up from my slumber
You made reality my guide

Thank you
You are my angel in disguise
You opened the door to destiny
When you lit my passion to prove you wrong

Thank you
That from where I now stand
I can see your humanness
So I understand and I forgive

Thank you
You were the jail that set me free
The pain that brought me gain
The sorrow that became my winning song

A million times, Thank You!

POEMS

Joy

image

Romancing the cold
The cold cold chill
Thawing the deep freeze
Rising from deep within
Unquenchable, unmistakeable

It’s a new kind of feeling
Yet not a feeling at all
Feelings are hard to control
This one is at my command
In the direst of times
I summon it to arise

From somewhere deep inside
No matter what the outside dictates
It rises and fills me up
It makes me unquestionably strong
You ask me what it is
It is joy unspeakable
Priceless pure joy
Such as the world cannot give.
