ONLY ONE LIFE

Only one life
Soon will be gone 
End of your lyric
But not of your song
When it is sung
What will it say
Will it be bright, or
Will it be gray
Self focused or not
Adventure or fear
Aimless or purposed 
Will it be clear
More than memories
Make a legacy
Invest life wisely
Before you're set free

I'M COMING FOR YOU

Girl, your past was a beautiful castle
You were a princess and had your man
Seemed your dreams were coming true
But your plans were on sinking sand

The ocean waters began to rise
The waves whipped their foam about
And when the tide had all come in
You were sadly left with little doubt

All your hopes got washed away
Inside and out you were all alone
You weren't dead but weren't living
Left without a love to call your own

Before you curse those ocean waves
That made shambles of your past
Know you'll rise from a water grave
Resurrected to a love that will last

Even now the current is pulling me
Sweet princess I am on my way
I'm riding waves to find your love
Your tide of hope comes in today

I'm coming for you today
When I come I'm going to stay

I'm coming for you today
When I come I'm going to stay

Reason

You're the reason I love this music,
You're the reason I joined the movement.
Five shots in one night,
Sweat after a big fight,
We're just living life.
The stage is on fire, these folks love it,
My memory is a playlist -- filled with your hits,
My heart is a drum beating to when you say things.
You're the reason I love this,
You're the reason behind your lyrics,
You're the reason I appreciate
The wonderful moments your videos create.
I was floating on misery, until you caught me,
I was filled with envy, until I became me.
You taught to see the light,
You're the reason there's a bright in my nights.
You're reason I came here to write this,
You're the reason I follow the club scenes.
You're the reason the microphone is a song on it's own,
You're the reason I held to my own.
You inspired the kid,
Now I'm going to inspire some kids.

READY TO LET GO

I'm ready to let go
Show you all of me
Expose my inner soul
It's longing to be free
Pretense can't survive
Plastic's for the shelf
Authentic comes alive
Revealing one's true self

So take a look inside
Walls are coming down
Tell me what you think
No one else is around
There's beauty to behold
But I'm also a big mess
If you take.. it's all of me
So I'll reveal and confess

People say that I'm a fool
Tell me to hide my flaws 
But I'm doing it my way
Violating culture's laws
Cause.. 
I don't have your heart
If I win it with a skillful lie
I unzip, here's my secrets
So is it Hello or Goodbye

JUST ANOTHER POET

I see I'm just another poet
In a string that's mighty long
I've dabbled in some forms
But mostly I just write songs

200 new poems are posted
I've only a single on this list
I'm just one of 24,000 poets
So easily skipped or missed

A few contest I always enter
A glory win feels mighty nice
But lately I'm getting N/A's
That has me thinking twice

I take joy and pride in writing
I try to be clever in what I say
For those of you who read me
Your comments make my day

*This is NOT entirely an autobiographical write.  It's written to represent any one of us.  And I guess in that sense, I'm included in this work as well.

WHAT MORE CAN I SAY


BY STREET CRIES

DEAR FATHER GOD I COME BEFORE YOUR THRONE 
NO INTERCESSORY PRAY JUST ME ALONE

I LIKE TO START OFF BY GIVEN PRAISE TO YOUR NAME 
THANKING YOU FOR CHANGE
ITS BY YOUR LOVING GRACE THAT MY LIFE HAS BROKEN CHAINS

NO MORE DEEP DEPRESSION OR PAIN
WITH PROGRESSION I SLOWLY OVER CAME
THINGS IN MY LIFE THAT CAUSED UNBEARABLE SHAME

EVEN THOUGH LIFE IS'NT PERFECT I WONT COMPLAIN 
YOU SEE ME THROUGH WHEN IT STORMS AND RAINS
CAUSE OF THAT VICTORY I PROCLAIM 

THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB IGNITES LIFE IN MY VEINS
ITS SIMPLE AND PLAIN OVER ALL CREATION FATHER YOU REIGN
SACRIFICE OF THE SON MAKE JEWS AND GENTILES THE SAME 

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE IS THE BLAME
THE RESULT IS ETERNAL LIFE TO GAIN
MY SITE YOU REARRANGED 

POURING OUT BLESSING FROM HEAVENS WINDOW PANE 
FORGIVING MY TRANSGRESSIONS REMOVING THE STAINS
YOU SEE ALL THAT I DO YET YOUR LOVE STILL REMAINS
AMEN


Details | Lyric | |

THROUGH IT ALL YOU STILL BELIEVED

I saw you waiting all this time
Through it all you still believed
Once again you two would rhyme
Poetic magic you'd conceive 
And I'd taste that rare fine wine
I too believed

I got the news today, it's true
Jadazzle will write once again
No longer feeling absence blues
I will be reading my two friends
Jan, I'm so thrilled for you
Let art begin

Now..
Music is in the air around me
Hope abounds everywhere
What was lost is reappearing
God has answered every prayer
One day soon a touch of Heaven 
The old duet will be brand new
I'm so happy, can't help but write 
So here's my simple song for you

A poem for YOU

In this world of Uncertainties I’m the man that you can trust And in my words of sincerity That my love would never last. And if you could only feel, what i feel for you You can ask me “why?” so you can see the truth Like our love that tightens the rope, Like a light that would give us hope. As you watch the dark skies Let me grab the moon for you, And as I catch the bright stars That’s the way you can see me through As this planet turns as it always will And things go wrong and you don’t know what to feel Hold my hand for it will make us strong Like a wind, we will carry on The wind blow that sings a hymn for you For they know what does love means for the two Love is blind, and not deaf So how’s success if you’re not ready to bet? In this poem with full of rhymes, A full of love, Babe can you be mine? I don’t expect too much from you Why should I? If you complete my whole. “Till death do us part” that’s what they have said But why do struggles crash them ahead? Don’t ask me when my love will last, To count all of our quarrels, is that a must? Now and Forever is all that I promise No day dreaming and without reminiscence As the matter of time, as the time passes by Together we stand, together you and I

WHEN I WAS YOUNG

Thinking back
when I was young 
I'd sit in church 
and chew my gum 
And write love notes 
to the pretty little girl sitting next to me
I laughed at things 
the preacher said
Until I heard 
how Jesus bled 
and died for me.. On a rugged tree

And God's heart is bigger
Than mine could ever be 
Now I know that for sure 
He'll always take good care of me
Jesus' hands may be rough and torn
But their beautiful, you see.. 
They carried my sin to lowly Calvary

This fellowship 
is so rich and sweet
I married that pretty girl 
and we sit at our Savior's feet
Yeah, our hands in His 
and His hands in ours

And God's heart is bigger
Than mine could ever be 
Now I know that for sure 
He'll always take good care of me
Jesus' hands may be rough and torn
But their beautiful, you see.. 
They carried my sin to lowly Calvary

When I look back I see
What He's done for me..
This is the day the Lord gave me this
Filled my life with peace and bliss
To think what I almost missed
..carried my sin to lowly Calvary

Amen!

AM GLAD YOU DO

___I'm glad you do___

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

In the history, those days won’t soon be forgotten
‘till this time, your words still worth a fortune
They will go nowhere; they will be with me forever
Those nights we shared, they will grow in me as ever.

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

As ever, you're the light I use to see
You're my savior, the one that set me free
You're an angel, that angel at the fore
You're a heroine, that heroine of the war.

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

You set me free and still stay by me
You let me feel… the fresh of where I be
You succor to the battle you do not begin
You let me live… though you do not commit a sin.

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

You're my light, the one I use to see
You're my savior, the one that set me free
You're an angel, that angel I met at the shore
You're that queen, my queen for sure.

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

I'm glad about what you do
You make my heart brand new.
I'm proud of you
I'm glad you do...

HOLDING ONTO YOU

I'm holding on to you
Won't let you drift away
Never going to let you go
Not tomorrow, not today
When the undertow is strong
You feel weak, can't fight
I'll hold you in my arms
Next to you all the night
I'm holding on to you

Life may hit you with a storm
Find yourself on a raging sea
I'll be the lifeline that you need
And pull you into me.. Into me

I'm holding on to you
I'm your fortress, your rock
I cherish your every breath
Protecting you around the clock
I'm keeping all your secrets
I battle to conquer your fear
Never leave or forsake you
By my side I want you near
I'm holding on to you

Life may hit you with a storm
Find yourself on a raging sea
I'll be the lifeline that you need
And pull you into me.. Into me

I'm holding on to you girl
Please hold on to me
I'll be the lifeline that you need
And pull you into me.. Into me

Never giving up (Revised)

(Verse 1)
There’s an aching in my back
An my knees are buckling in
My body’s hurt n bruised
friends r’ say ‘n take a step back ‘n relax

(Bridge)
got so much on my mind  
faster and faster I here myself say
I cant give up when I’m half way through
pure determination drives me hard and true

(Hook)
Never giving up
I can see it now the sun is shine ‘n on me
Never giving up
I’m almost there the inspiration I need

(Verse 2
The devil can try to slow me down
Putting all those boundaries road blocks round
But without a flinch in my face
I’ll jump up move and around 
 
(Bridge)
My destiny is calling to me 
Got lots to accomplish no time to tire
There’s a sunrise coming up in my face
My dreams are right there I’m following through

(Hook x 2) 
Never giving up
been a long time but the sun is shine ‘n on me
Never giving up
I never looked back now I see inspiration in front of me

Play With Me

Words on a screen shape my soul,
You give me strength, make me whole.
Embrace my worries, you welcome my freak,
Dance with me until my knees get weak.
Thoughts of tasting you tickle my tongue,
Lips striptease with the songs we've sung.
Puzzle pieces once lost in the void of never,
Would you love me, here now, and forever?

Lyrics are a language, softly they spill,
Breath by breath, you are the tip to my quill.
You write me wants and desire in dance,
Welcome the stars in a star struck romance.
I fancy the fling with butterfly wings spreading,
We both know where this is heading...

Words, how intriguing but babe you gotta know,
This symphony is not just a one woman show.
You play my fiddle, you beat an echo to my drum, 
When I say crescendo, I want you to come.
I dare you to duet, let's mix our ink for all to see...
Would you, could you, won't you, make music with me??

Wanderlust

The birds glide, I don’t know why
It gives me reason to sing
So who am I? What can I bring?

The trees grow, the waters flow
To take us far from here
So who are we? Why do we fear?

In all the glories shown to us, 
We must give in to our wanderlust
To make amends for wrongs we’ve done
Inspire the dreams, in everyone

The lambs leap, the willows weep
To show us we can dance and cry
Don’t live a lie; just ask why

The oceans latch, seashells laugh
There’s always an escape
To the martyr’s smile, on the sun’s sweet dial

In all the glories shown to us, 
We must give in to our wanderlust
To make amends for wrongs we’ve done
Inspire the dreams, in everyone

Don’t let it fade,
Don’t hold it down
The sky is open for us now
Just let them fly,
Those hurts we keep
Inspire the heart, inspire the dream! 

In all the glories shown to us, 
We must give in to our wanderlust
To make amends for wrongs we’ve done
Inspire the dreams, in everyone

In everyone
Inspire the dreams, in everyone

The Golden Poets

Poets are like gold these days
their beautiful sayings and touching ways
tell such stories of kindness, drama, sorrow
things of  the future like many tomorrows
they are so passionate about what they do
they let out the most humble of feelings with which to do
to meet hearts and souls suddenly and release the many of you
with sincerity.  They have a way of grabbing you and making you cry
with the deepness of pen and emotions flying across each sentence and why
their sad is so sad, their love is so deep, their laugh is so real, the blue of the sky
they say like we need to hear it, we're so near it
it becomes dear to us and then becomes clearer
we hang on each of their words and wait for more
we love them and can't get enough, "don't shut that door!"
We'll wait for them, buy their books, escape through them
sit back and relax in a tub full of bubbles and it feels like a sin
she loves him, he loves her, they astound me with feeling
then they quit on each other and they send me reeling
how perfect and the suspense and the beauty of it all
I'd love to call the author and ask questions and make more calls
I love it, then I can't take it, they are so real in every way
I want them with me and invite them to stay
how can they right so perfect so feeling and such
it's got to be more than just a freaky thing or luck
they capture it so well they are so very talented too
to take you places you always wanted to go and see through
the camera all about them and this takes you there and snaps
pictures and makes you feel like it's no way a trap
but a thing of beauty and you know you'll be back
they are so beautiful,( all these poets ) so special each one
you'll  laugh and cry and be amazed with the feelings of fun
they are so valuable in life, don't be without them
they will take you all over the globe and back at the gym
I have favorites, too many to say
I'll read anyway, all of them one day
they say it all in my heart and my soul
they are my strength should I be told
I love them you see, they are pure gold

Yung MCs

Hook: Here's the truth. We gon shine. Yung MCs and that's no lie. Coming up. To our door. Yea we got them flows galore. (Repeat x4)         Verse: Guess who just jumped on the phone. Riding to a new metronome. With his sickish flows. He's hysterical. So scientific, alchemical. And everyone knows I'm genuine. I'm stacking do like innuen. Time for you to tell all your friends that this yung mc is stepping in. The rap game poor. Needs a switch in economics. Cuz a lot of these suckas still talking bout the chronic. Youthful intelligence, call it Malcolm in the middle. You old brothers sit down. Try to learn to widdle. Cuz these yung MCs gonna leave you frikazied.  We a whole new breed. Give the people what they need.  We a brand new sound. From a dusty ghost town. Reborn from the ashes. It had burned to the ground. This yung brother yurns. For the world to hears his words. Because the rap nowadays is so absurd. But I assure you this. When I walk into the room. Put my mouth to the mic. And straight up kill it on a tune. I'll come with a style that'll match any vet. Rhymes way swift  5 blade like Gillette. The level I stand will never be met. Cuz you fly bird. Yet I fly jet. And honestly when we on the scene you hear the sickest similes. Slicing beats with symmetry that cause the haters ears to bleed. I take the light you try to keep. Cuz all your words are obsolete. It's night-night. Time to sleep. Close the crypt. Rest in peace.

Fighting Cancer

Every day I am fighting cancer I'm stronger then it and can process faster.  It's funny to me how it works but I am going to show it defeat.  It can knock me down and hurt me but I will always be standing on both of my feet.

I can live with it or without it. It doesn't matter to me.  Hopes and dreams, sun's and breeze, night and day laugh with play I can live for another day.  I can show cancer I will be a winner, so it better out of my way.  Because I am going to be the one to be fantastic, just like a beautiful sunny day.

I feel sick and my bones feel weak as sticks.  But my heart is nice and strong like a stone, I have a family that loves me at home, so I know I am not alone through the struggle I am facing.  I am fighting cancer and it is kind of risky.  But I will win this fight and I will be able to sleep in peace and silence tonight.

It's a challenge though I guess it's just hard times in Idaho or all the world and that's intense.  This cancer thing just makes no sense.  But I can be stronger and get along and hopefully live longer. This is my story and hopefully it doesn't end out wrong.  And thanks to those who show me love.

I have a dream but every day that I breath it seems to extreme.  I have courage, power, and one day I will rise higher than a tower.  I am just a little girl who is whiter and more precious than a real pearl.  I am fighting cancer and I am trying to run faster so I can win and have cancer lost in the wind.  This is my dream and hopefully I will win. . . 


"This is a poem for a special friend of mine and her daughter has cancer God bless her and save her"

Who am I

A tribute to Ramana Maharshi, a man who has inspired me for forty years. a greaty Indian saint he was.....Peter




Who Am I?

Sometimes I ask the question “who Am I?”
Am I just this tiny speck put here by trust?
Just a puppet in the hands of destiny
To be blown within the wind just merely dust.

Then sometimes I’m aware of who I am
As I stand beside a lake or waterfall
As the music of the morning melts into me
And deep within that ancient whisper calls.

Well I ask myself this question
“Will I ever find the way?”
Ramana told me what to do
Said “Do it now, today!”

Oh such a little question one may ask
Does the answer come and blow the mind away?
Will the truth arise to set the bird to freedom?
If one asks this thing each minute of the day.

TEMPERATURE RISING

I'm not ashamed 
To let it show
You light me up 
I feel your glow
My heart is racing
Love the beat inside
Not apologizing
I'm not gonna hide

The feeling's spreading
Like a sweet disease
Your beauty's outrageous 
Knock me to my knees
Don't need a doctor
There's no cure
Girl, you're my fever
That's for sure

Temperature rising
Climbing degrees
Girl, you're my fever
Knock me to my knees
Temperature rising
Oh, taste the heat
Sweet Caliente
Burning, spicy treat

DOG NAMED BLUE

I had a plain pet rock 
Before it was a fad
I longed for a puppy
Wasn't allowed by dad
So I'd just pretend 
It was my shaggy dog
We'd go on walks
And jump over logs
We'd lay in the grass
And take in the rays
Me and my pet rock
On summer dog days
When school started
I'd take him with me
Kept in my pocket
No one could see
This boy had a dream
Now it's come true
Me and my son
Have a dog named Blue

SO LONG AS PEOPLE LIKE TO CHEW

Tragically lost his mom and dad
When he was eight years old
The only thing this boy had
Was a survivor's spirit so bold
Court moved him to the country
He didn't know a single soul
His life had been a busy shovel
That kept digging a bigger hole
No one had been kind to him
But he didn't see it that way
Just smiled through the suffering
He had a dream of a better day
The same year a stranger felt sorry
When they met handed him gum
Didn't chew it, he sold the pack
And his little business had begun
From one pack he bought two
And from those two it grew to four
From four packs he made eight
His emerging business hit the floor
Now it's just a few years later
Everything he touches turns to gold
He's reached the business pinnacle
And he's only 28 years old
This week I was invited to a meeting
So I made the trip from America
To fund a massive orphan program  
In downtown Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
My African friend, the biggest donor
Once an orphan he owns the cause
Ask him why he gives so sacrificially 
He'll smile at you and say because..

When I was just a lonely orphan lad
Nothing going right that I could see
That white dude standing over there
Gave a single pack of gum to me
And one by one I sold each piece
Took those profits to buy even more
And look it's just twenty years later
Now orphan care is what I'm living for
From a desperate hole to a mountain
Never know what's going on inside
All these kids need is an opportunity
They can take it deep and wide
When it comes to caring for the least
Don't say there's nothing you can do
There's always hope for the orphan
So long as people like to chew...

*The climber is through the eyes of a great friend in Ethiopia.  From orphan to one of the most successful young men in the country.

The Wedding

Sometimes things are up,
And sometimes they are down,
Sometimes black is white, 
And sometimes it is brown.
All the rivers flowing,
Back to the sacred sea,
All the monkeys climbing,
Up the very same tree.
You think you know a lot,
Think you know it all,
But the autumn leaves are falling,
At the north wind's lonely call.
The thinking of the meaning,
The reasons lost and gone,
At last the place is ready, 
A vacant holy throne.
The emptiness that fill you,
Fills you from inside,
Is the treasure you are holding,
The bridegroom's holy bride.
And now the north wind's blowing,
Blowing down the Way,
And now we sit here waiting,
For the bridegroom's wedding day.

MARCHING FOR DIGNITY




Medals on frames stood upright and straight,
Like guns marching on bloody road to Death March
At eighteen, he bore the pellets of war’s cause
Fingers wounded by splinters from a grenade

Spawned by raw courage for freedom’s glory
He counted black hours guarding his troops;
Piloting aircraft and landing on muddy swamp 
Worse was the order to kick his dead friend, Paul.

Black nights fed thinner ribs with brisk attacks
Riddling air with roulette of mortar sounds,
Yet country’s honor soared higher than gray winds
A testament for a man of lofty ideals.

Tales of grit, battle scars wrapped in dignity
A body resting on heroes’ graveyard, our flag rising;
Until the end, code of gallantry filled life’s moments
Of one general, dear Dad, your spirit walks with me.

I'm Comin' Home

Well, I'm high on country music.
And my mind, it won't refuse it.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

And I'm high on constellations.
Buddy, I've got relations.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

Now, you see it your way.
And baby, I see it my way.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

'Cause I'm high on country music.
And my mind, it won't refuse it.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

And I'm high on constellations.
And buddy, I've got relations.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

Now, you see it your way.
And baby, I see it my way.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

'Cause I'm high on country music.
And my mind, it won't refuse it.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

FLYING HOME TO YOU

Flying home to you
Girl, I miss your touch
It's been way too long
Need you so much
My arms don't know 
What they're supposed to do
Just hanging around
Waiting to hold you
My lips only making words
Soon they'll be tasting sweet
When we're together
They'll be feeling heat
In your lover's mind
Oh yeah, burning in his heart
He's already there
Soulmate's never really part
Flying home to you
Living on cloud nine
Oh, your breath gives me wings
Just knowing your mine
Flying home to you 
I'm coming,
I'm coming,
Coming home to you!

Grandma Was Dancing

She was a tappin' to the tunes...

step-pin' out, in her white...
Pat-en-leather shoes,

We were a watchin' her a prancin',
all through the kitchen, dancin'...
for she was so...hot & sizzlin'...
hummin' to those Mississippi tunes...

Funny curlers too, upon...
her head...for a new... Hair dew,...

when her head...star-ted a bobbin' to...

while that kettle there was whistlin',
in har-mo-ny, with them good ole...
good ole...mississip-pi moves,'

That floor there, was a bouncin'
holdin' hands we were a jumpin',
an-a hoppin' In the kitchen, to those...
                  sounds ...
Where Grandma's feet were a stompin',
In her new...New-white-sexy-pat-en-

I have wondered long on how it would feel
If true love I ever found
Would I know in my heart that this is the one
To whom my soul would be bound -
Is it to you that my soul is bound?

How should I respond to the words you speak
Can I know whether they are sincere
Am I able to tell by the sound of your voice
As you whisper in my ear?

When you look at me so lovingly
With that twinkle in your eye
It stirs my heart and lights my soul
There are times it makes me cry

I am overwhelmed at the depth of your love
How tender you are to me
And I think to myself - can this really be true
Or is it just fantasy?

Are my fears misplaced -  Do I wonder too much?
Am I using my doubts as a crutch?
Should I open my mouth and reveal to you
Just how deeply my heart has been touched?

I'll let fear and doubt go now - and trust in our love
For I know I have finally found
A treasure of love burning bright within me
And to you, my soul will be bound
Yes.  It's to you my soul is bound!

DEVINE INTERVENTION

Oh, Maarten de Jonge
Alive, you're not gone
Your margin so razor thin

Devine intervention
You must have a mission
More than a cycling win

Flight MH17 shot down
Flight MH370 never found
Yet you flew Malaysia again

Twice blessed now we'll see
What about number three
Tempting fate.. still you grin

*Maarten de Jonge, renowned Malaysian cyclist, was supposed to fly on both Flight MH370, which has yet to be found after disappearing over the Indian Ocean in March, and MH17, which was shot down over Ukraine

The Quality Within Me

The quality that is within me
To see it I had to find the key
Open it up and take a look
It was like a mystery book

So I opened the book and began to read
I was amazed by a single seed 
That was planted in me one day
But it wasn't watered so it withered away

Then I read on and began to see
Other qualities within me
Qualities that are possibilities
As long as I never lost the key

GOD'S KIND OF POETRY

GOD'S KIND OF POETRY

I love you, don't you feel?
Have faith. Trust me.
I am here, I am real.

I love you 'til the ends of the earth
   to the bottom of my heart..
From minute dusts, I adjust
   forming you with my own bear hands
Appointing you to be on high command
   over animals, plants and all others I planned

I love you, don't you feel?
Have faith. Trust me.
I am here, I am real.

I trust you much I let you run and roam
  I got upset you chose lure than obedience
But, I love you so so much that I am still here
   a father waiting for you to come home
Arms spread wide ready to embrace you tight
  Aching to show you more of my love and light

I love you, don't you feel?
Have faith. Trust me.
I am here, I am real.

I know you have been on trash or myriad tests
  to which sometimes you're on bended knee with tears 
Asking; Swearing; Doubting me when bad surprises
  cascade soak then thoroughly bathe you...
Don't you know that while you are in this...
  
I am listening to your shake and tremble
   I am there next to you, sobbing too..
I am hoping for you to remember ME.
   I am hoping for you to call my name.
As I am eager, so eager, to share your burden
   I am ardent, so ardent, to make you smile.

I love you, don't you feel?
Have faith. Trust me.
I am here, I am real.

I love you much that if needed I will sacrifice
 With all I am, I will draw you nearer to me
Not with golden armory of might or power
 but with the Spirit, I have sent to be with you
to remind you that I am here, always with you.
 Just don't you forget to seek me and my Words.

I love you, don't you feel?
Have faith. Trust me.
I am here, I am real.

*** inspired by one of my favorite Christian song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j37Oz1lmnfU 

and Romans 8:37-39:

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
