Grandma

The world did wear you down and on you passed.
Nightmares of young did press your eyes to close,
But God has gathered you and him at last.

Today we mourn for you, with hearts half-mast,
Today your joy above joins here our woes.
The world did wear you down and on you passed.

Now Zion holds you in its streets, so vast, 
Your withered hands and shining soul repose.
But God has gathered you and him at last.

Gehenna reaps none of what it has cast, 
Sheol takes skins and God what he now sows.
The world did wear you down and on you passed.

The space where you once stood won’t fill so fast,
Your words will warm in us what hate once froze,
But God has gathered you and him at last.

Go meet Allah and He, your loves, in grassed,
Unfettered fields. Your death on Earth now shows
The world did wear you down and on you passed,
But God has gathered you and him at last.

A Daydream

What if I was Esther and named queen?
Could I be beautiful, brave, and bold?
I would—at least in my daydream.

Pianos would ne’er need practicing,
Mother would not hover and scold,
What if I was Esther and named queen?

My face would shine with love all agleam,
I would drink from goblets made of gold,
I would—at least in my daydream.

Death would befall all Haman’s team,
Victory for my people would unfold,
What if I was Esther and named queen?

I would ruin Haman’s odious scheme,
Righteousness and justice I would uphold,
I would—at least in my daydream.

Lord, I can just picture the scene,
I would lavish thanks uncontrolled,
I would—at least in my daydream.
What if I was Esther and named queen?

Fallen Angel Serenade

Angels descending, bring from above, echoes of mercy, Whispers of love, God's cherub strum a song on high Spirit lit in His holiness share a new song with me Serenade me with blessings into His arms, I plea In your celestial presence, my soul caresses the sky Angels descending, bring from above, echoes of mercy Whispers of love, please envelop me for I am weary I embrace the loving touch of God you personify Spirit lit in His holiness share a new song with me Messengers of God carry His love on wings of glory Soaring to new heights, I hear heavenly harps as I fly Angels descending, bring from above, echoes of mercy Whispers of love, angels spread God's true love story Often their whispers are like sacred shouts from nigh Spirit lit in His holiness share a new song with me Singing joyful song, lull me in praise to God gently Shield me from the wickedness of the world, I cry Angels descending, bring from above, echoes of mercy Spirit lit in His holiness; share a new song with me

Gnashing of Teeth: Memoirs of Hell's Lost Battles

Encircled in fire and pain, the angels sought flight,
Torrents of misery to thy soul, frozen and bound
Immobilized by very hand of God this night.

The feared legions down from below did fight,
Gave it some hell and brought heaven around,
Encircled in fire and pain, the angels sought flight.

Angels fearful to tread in this vapid absence of light,
Absconding to seek him, heavens hallowed crowned,
Immobilized by the very hand of God this night.

Losing lust for battle for fiery lands was the plight,
Downtrodden and fearing his plans ran aground and
Encircled in fire and pain, the angels sought flight.

But God had the answer for setting this all right,
Took the power of love, then hellish grins frowned,
Immobilized by the very hand of God this night.

Dear God it took your heavenly grace and sight
Of love, to see, yet he found them tired and downed
Encircled in fire and pain, the angels sought flight,
Immobilized by the very hand of god this night.

Joyfilled

My heart is filled with happiness today
Spreading sunshine makes me sing
Nothing will dampen my spirit, I pray

Traveling alone down life’s pathway
Holding the hand of heaven’s King
My heart is filled with happiness today

I see fellow travelers filled with dismay
Knowing not to God they should cling
Nothing will dampen my spirit, I pray

From His presense never let me stray
Knowing that salvation He did bring
My heart is filled with happiness today

To be counted among the saints, I did obey
To live in heaven’s eternal spring
Nothing will dampen my spirit, I pray

So with my heart light, my voice will ring
Praising God for  each and everything
My heart is filled with happiness today
Nothing will dampen my spirit, I pray

I say there is no god.

It's already too odd
The world is just for us
I say there is no god

I might not want to nod
But I just think I must
It's already too odd

I don't want a squad
Ready to blow a bus
I say there is no god

The opinions may be broad
But it all comes back to cuss
It's already too odd

There is no need to cod
The problems should have rust
I say there is no god

In truth, it's all so flawed
Why do we discuss
it's already too odd
I say there is no god.

To You, O Lord, I beg and sigh

What is my hope in this life?
Without You, under the skies, there’s only hell.
To You, O Lord, I beg and sigh!

Rejections, taunts, helplessness, all kinds of strife,
People, homes, values, all things in peril,
What is my hope in this life?

You expose my heart to tempests; I cry
In deep anguish, I beseech and kneel -
To You, O Lord, I beg and sigh!

Stir my heart to seek You; let not my spirit dry,
For with your absence in this tough duel -
What is my hope in this life?

My little mind cannot equal your wisdom so high,
Amid confusion I am a wondering, wandering fool,
To You, O Lord, I beg and sigh!

Helping grace and love you will abundantly supply;
Under the heavens - will be glory eternal.
What is my hope in this life -
To You, O Lord, I beg and sigh!

**Inspiration from Romans 8:35-39 "...Nothing can separate us from the Love 
of God..."

This poem is offered to the people of Iraq ( the Yazidis and other minorities) 
going through persecution. Let us pray  that they may have the strength to 
face all the adversities confronting them as God envelops them with His 
immense love and mercy.

The Time Store

I want to go to the time store and buy more
Another year another day to
Enjoy simple things we didn't make time for. 

We could sit on the beach and watch the shore 
Go to a still lake and fish from a canoe
I want to go to the time store and buy more.

I want to keep every promise to you I ever swore
Bake fresh bread with you to dip in cheese fondue
Enjoy simple things we didn't make time for.

Let's tell our kids all of your family lore 
Adopt new kittens and listen to their mew
I want to go to the time store and buy more.

Let's paint a rainbow using every color
Mix and invent new ones with a unique hue
Enjoy simple things we didn't make time for.

With bent knees, we'll pray on the floor
Praise God for little things like morning dew
I want to go to the time store and buy more
Enjoy simple things we didn't make time for.
