1  Miatianna                                           2  Miatianna                            
    Stands alone in the rubble                       Outside, standing in the mud                     
     Looking for MaMa                                   Crying for Daddy              
                                  3  Maitianna
                                      Sorrounded by disaster
                                      Where is brother, Juan

4  An orphan, at six                                  5  How will she survive?
    Her tummy growls from hunger                Let us Pray to the Most High
    Her Throat parched from thirst                 A Prayer is answered
                                     6  Miatianna
                                         Moving to America
                                         Knowing Love again

                               Inspired by the Haitian Earthquake
                               Dedicated to all the Haitian Nation

Passing Regret

Dead winds blow through the 
Old oak parlor door at night
Silently she screams 

No one to hear her 
Stifled, but desperate cry 
She waits, hopes, and dreams

A sin, she's told to 
Want for anything more than
Rough stone, wood and brass 

Resolved, she watches 
The sun die, to rise again
Through the old stained glass

Trapped in unselfish 
And eternal devotion 
Both, the cage and key 

Lingering in what 
Well might or might not have been 
Dreams are hard to see

Vows uttered to God
With well meaning intention
The velvet-lined snare 

She, with rosary 
Held tight in her trembling hands
Buries all in prayer

Prayer Is Everywhere

prayer is everywhere
alive in word and action
There for all to share.

at the end of days
my prayer to be with you...
also the sunrise.

Measures of Faith

Freedom in infinite latitude of grace
Answering questions life cannot face
Inspiring a victor's heart in salvation's race
Templed in the love of Christ, the joy to taste
Heaven as bread, and earn it as place.
Measure to me all
The landscape of broken will
Indwell finite space

To endure the night
In raptures claiming presence
Of eternal day

Passing through darkness
With soul untainted, flawed light
Imaging glory

I hold with hands firm
Beyond the brim of eyes span
The great coming, here!

I behold in grime
Figures of hate, bruised and bare
Loving enemies

Earth is illusion
The kingdom is veiled by love
Absent from the heart

O Master, bless me
When night has no moon or stars
To walk in this light

To soar above fear
Treat a pauper like a prince
And sing to the cross

What I see transforms
Daylight is a prayer new
Night a song of praise

It is a gift rare
For opened hearts, and bowed wills
And love of the king.

In pain there is joy
If love's purpose tells sweet gain
So still I remain.

Unto Jehovah

  bright garland of hope 
said in silver wrapped in gold
   a child's prayer for peace
