What Is Life?

I‘ve discovered as I grow older how much faith plays a bigger role in my life than ever before. It takes faith to overcome the new aches and pains which pop up. It takes great faith to move through a chronic illness each day. It takes faith to move past the sadness of losing family and friends. In fact I’ve learned the older I get the more my life revolves around my faith.

The importance of faith in my life is why I like to write poems and lyrics which reflect my faith. I hope you enjoy these new offerings and hey show you in some small measure the importance of living a faith filled life. Until next time stay strong and faithful at all times.

Near You

I must set out

Go back to my father

Lay out all my sin

Ask for forgiveness

Be a child of his again


The world is no Place

To be wandering alone

Father, father

I want to come back home

Father please let me be

Near you, near you

Cause

By your side is comfort

By your side is peace

By your side I’ll truly find

The rest I need


Father please forgive me

For what I’ve done

I’m not worthy to be

Called your son

I’ve wasted the inheritance

You gave to me

I wasted it all so so foolishly

Father, please let me be

Near you, near you

Cause

By your side is comfort

By your side is peace

By your side I’ll truly find

The rest I need

Father, please forgive me

Father I want once again to be

Near you, near you

I want to be near you

Life Is…

Life is:

A little bit happy

A little but sad

A little bit good

A little bit bad


Life is, Life is


Life is:

A little bit here

A little bit there

A little bit self

A little bit care


Life is,

A little bit me

A little bit you

A little bit gone

A little bit new


Life is, Life is

Choose Life

At times in our life

We choose to live

Like tomorrow is not

A gift to give

It is like we worry

About our last

Or focus too much

On the past

To ever wear a smile

On our face

Or to live our lives

To win the the race

But in the end

there’s only one thing to do

There’s only one thing left

But it’s up to you


Choose life

Choose to

Live your best

Wear a smile

Each day you have left

No matter what comes

Along your way

Each and every day

Choose life

Choose life

Do Good

Oh God I seek

In my heart to try

To do good to others

Cause I know

When you bother

To live as you say

it will

quiet lips

still tongues

for no one will

be able

to speak against you

speak against you



I also know Lord

If I live my life

in a certain way

not for me

because I want to

live for you

O’ Lord

So I know

when people see

My life

It will be your

Work

They will see

So my witness

Can draw them

Closer to you

Grumps

I complain

I grumble

I grump

Cause people all around

Got me down in the dump

They say things

They do things

Say I’m to blame

For causing them

So much pain


But Lord Am I, Am I

Am I the one

Who is to blame

Am I the one causing them

So much pain


I only try to share

With everyone the Word

Just as you have said

As I’ve always heard

Not out of malice

Or wishing any ill will


So open their heart, their eyes

So they can see

The truth of whom I am

Who I’m called to be

Humility

Asking for a humble heart

Can be a scary thing

For in our world

Pride is what sings


We want to be

Number one

Numero uno

The king of our thrones

Nothing else matters

Not the dog or the bone


Asking for a humble heart

Can be a scary thing

For in our world

Pride is what sings


Our heroes are the best

Not the least of these

Our walk is heads high

Not down in the weeds


We want to be

Number one

Numero uno

The king of our thrones

Nothing else matters

Not the dog or the bone

The Voice

There’s a voice

Inside your head

That talks all day

It whispers

It yells

What is right

What is wrong


Yet you ignore the voice

Do your own

Do your own


Move yourself over

over

Out of the way

Let the voice

guide you

So you don’t stray


There’s a voice

Inside your head

The voice of wisdom

of truth

of faith

In this life

In this world


Yet you ignore the voice

Do your own

Do your own


Move yourself over

over

Out of the way

Let the voice

guide you

So you don’t stray
