Poetry to Encourage Us to Love and Forgive


Dream little one of a new world close to Thee
Where the lion and the lamb are at peace and wars have ceased

Dream little one of love all around
Where joy abounds and there is no sound
Of fighting and battles and screams in the night
Just God's love abiding in the hearts embracing us and holding us tight

Blessed are those who walk in peace
Who love one another where strife has ceased



Love Of God

The love of God is a mystery in my heart
Flowing from heaven through this vessel
To the lonely and rejected so they can feel a part
Of Gods wonderful Love and Peace
Reaching out to lift those that smart

Open wide your doors to Love all embracing
To our Lord who keeps no record of wrongs
And the stain of sin erasing
From broken vessels searching for some hope
Freed from the burden and shame of sin abasing

Free to fly on wings a soaring
Free to fly on the thermals
Of peace and love and a life not boring
But filled with joy and hope eternal.

Gods Love Is All Embracing


Cool Mountain Air

Cool was the mountain air as it rushed over my ears
The chill cut into the skin
And drove off the cares
Cleansing the mind from a cluttered life
Eradicating the stress and the strife

A hike up a mountain whether high or low
Can bring back the Life that you forgot to know
Where Peace reigns and stillness abides
The God who is meant in our hearts,
to reside.

Beautiful poetry to provoke thought. Jesus is all about mercy and forgiveness and starting fresh. Your poetry embodies this.

I loved all three of these.

Your talent with words is quite awesome.

Thanks for sharing.

Love and peace often comes easy, until we include the thoughts and opinions of others in our personal world. Perhaps a bit more acceptance and understanding of those we view as opposing us, seeking to understand them rather than to change them or push our beliefs on them. So much bitter resentment of personal opinions in the world, love and peace comes when we accept others.

A nice set of poems, even if I cannot wholly agree with the sentiments within.

Peggy, so true, the world needs some encouragement and a dose of love and peace, to counteract all the frightening emotions.

Diana Carol Abrahamson (author) from Somerset West on April 07, 2020:

Thanks Lorna. Yes Peace and Love are much needed in our world. Mountains have always been a source of inspiration to me.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on April 06, 2020:

We can all use lovely words about peace and love, especially right now, when the world's people are stressed due to the pandemic. Too bad it takes an epidemic to draw us closer to these ideals. Perhaps the result of this will be more peace and love. We can hope that is the case!
