The Poet

The Poet

The poet reaches for his pen
a broken heart to bare
To write the words he cannot speak
his deepest thoughts to share...

A well that springs from deep within
cannot be now contained
Emotions trapped for many years
run free and unrestrained...

A teardrop falls upon the page
the ink begins to smear
An avalanche of pouring rain
the words soon disappear...

The Word

Oh the power of the word
a sword that cuts within 
Exposing my humanity
convicting me of sin...

The light that shines on every man
reveals the heart of God
The gospel that transforms the soul
and saves the weak and flawed... 

The key that opens prison doors 
and sets the captive free
The truth that gives me perfect peace
and speaks so clear to me..

I have a friend who loves me so
and now we both agree
I once was lost but now I'm found
was blind but now I see...
