Here are a few poems I have recently written.I hope they bring some enjoyment.God bless.

 Sweet Jesus I owe everything to you and to you alone,
 You have shown me my home,you are my anchorstone,
You have saved me always when stormy winds have blown,
You have always been my rock,the truest friend I've known,
 And why do you think me worthy as a seed you have sown
What can I ever do to earn all the love you've shown .

 I am not a wealthy man but I am very rich by far,
When I walk my journey you're my guiding star
 And you know that I am honest in all the things I do,
I have never born false witness,I only say what's true,
You have strengthened my soul before I even knew
 Of life's losses with your love to see me through.

You have always had your hand placed within my soul,
You have shown me your light that has made me whole,
I have never know this love that comes from your grace,
Nor have I known compashion that shines from your face,
For I am still a sinner and you are the son of God
I can only meet you after I've slept beneath the sod.

Let me know sweet Jesus, let me know beyond my days
Let me know my savior,when I bow down to you in praise,
When my time here is drawing short and coming to a close,
 As they carry me away after leading the life I chose,
I pray that I will leave not sorrow for those that I love,
But instead to know the joy that waits for us above.

 Jesus my savior and the light,
Keep me humble in your sight
Allow me to serve where I may,
Until we meet on that day.

 With your arms open wide
Welcome me to come inside
Where love and faith n'er hide,
 And your love is my guide. 

Ever more to sing your praise,
With our fiery hearts ablaze,
Your holy name will 'er be sung
Evermore from every tongue.  
 My daughter l  love you so,
 You are as a candle glow
 In a world that'gone dark
 And you are love's spark.

 Know that you will find
 Someone loving and kind
 To help you to be you
 With a love oh so true.

 Like 'a thief in the night'
 He will appear in your light,
 Though upon first sight
 He turns out just and right. Wm.M     
hawqguy, thank you for sharing such beautiful words, you have a gift which I would encourage you to share to a broader audience; I shall put my thinking cap on. What a wonderful forum. I have found a new home on this website. I am a great believer in affirmations, prayers to my angels and will always pick up a print that inspires strength, wisdom and love to start my day.

I have a lovely picture of a bird flying over a sea of water which reads;
When you come to the edge of all that you know,
you must believe in one of two things;
there will be earth upon which to stand
or you will be given wings.

My other all time favourite is the Serenity prayer. It says it all.

hawqguy, I look forward to reading your prose and uplifting prayers.
Thank you :)
