Poetry

You’re Always There for Me

When the world comes crashing in
And chaos rules my mind,
I turn my heart to you, Lord,
And pure, sweet peace I find.

You lift me out of trouble
You comfort me in pain;
You nourish, heal and cleanse me,
Like cool, refreshing rain.

In times of joy and bliss,
When things are going right,
You lift me even higher,
And fill me with delight.

You listen to my prayers;
You hear my every plea;
I’m safe because I know
You’re always there for me

Summer Delights

Healing summer heat
That comforts every bone;
Juicy summer fruits,                                                                                                                             A frosty ice cream cone.

Aroma of sizzling meat
Grilling on the barbecue,
Green lawns and summer flowers,
A gazillion fun things to do.

Summer shorts and swimsuits,
Arms and legs are bare;
Summer’s sweet delights
Are welcome everywhere!
