The Stars Shine in the Depths of the Ocean

Poetry allows the release of my innermost feelings. Let me explain by painting a picture in your mind with words!

The Stars Shine in the Depths of the Ocean

The night tells all, and it needed nothing to set the call yes, she hears the screams engulf the nothingness of time
Who makes the one call when no one is speaking? Your heart hears voices that crawl in the mind

She tried with all her might to grasp the stars in her hands and let them go to the places not seen by man
As she soars through the galaxy, it takes her away to the next plight of her dreams as they fade into black and white then vanish

The Deep is Dark

She doesn’t know what got her to this place or how to even go back to the pain of living
She’s not wishing for death; she is longing to live and be happy just the money changer gives the lost nothing

How did she get here? She thinks back to happier times and the femaleness of what love once felt like
Not by mortal men for their hearts are tainted with stains, that they call enduring love and the sickness of this plight

Dancing Willows in the Waterfalls of Life

She settles her feet firmly on the sands of the meadow where happier time made her smile, where she once danced under the waterfall amongst the weeping willows
Time has no clock, and nothing keeps time – just a moment of silence when she knew what love meant and she wished for the young fellow

To find her yet again, this was safety, she knew He would carry her through the challenging times and show her what true love means and why
She's twirling around with delight while calling out to Jesus Christ
Come save me for I messed up again and I lost my way to sin
I thought I was in love but by the love of men gets lost with no way to win

He Calmed the Rushing Waters

Jesus! If I call out your name and ask you to save me, I know you hear my plea
In an instant, He was before me full of glory, and I fell to my knees as he held me tenderly

He calmed the rushing waters as he set me on my feet, He told me to never give up for he knows true love reigns
Just keep me in your sights my precious one, say your prayers, now stand on your feet for your debt was paid

Seek forgiveness, love always finds away, no matter how lost you get, I will always show you the way home
To my Father, who is true love, agape love that most don’t understand but he is there when you pray listening from His glorious throne

I will never leave you, my child even when you think you’re alone, I make sure to carry you to higher ground

This I promise you always and forever for you are heaven-bound...

"Let me paint you a picture - a picture with words"

Thank you, Lord, for the gift of writing poetry!

I praise the Lord for the gift of writing from my heart in hope of touching your hearts and bring the joy of beautiful memories past and future.

And most of all in sharing my love of Christ Jesus with the world- Amen

Exactly Brenda and when we feel we may have gotten off the beating path and we are going the wrong way, all we have to do is call out to Jesus and poof, we're on the right path again.

Thank you for your sweet words!

This is so true. He is always walking with us helping us along the way.

There were moments I would doubt only to find him there waiting for me to reach out.

Great poem.
