FROM THE MIND OF A WORDSMITH
Loving Embrace

Waiting To Embrace You

imam

Just as you are

The welcome mat says

It’s not about status

Or fancy threads

All are welcomed

One and all

Wide open

Is the Father’s arms

Ready to receive you

With grace and love

Leave It At The Cross

Leave It At The Cross

Son of God

I rest at your feet

My burdens I leave at the cross

Your death has set me free

Humbled as I am

Will my mind fully comprehend

Such a sacrifice of love

From a father who only wants

To bring his children home

Idle or Love?

Morning light nudges me
A new day to walk along side you
Hopefully, people see you more than myself
My actions and mannerism bringing you to mind

When I smile shyly
to a soul yet to know you,
may light break their apathetic standstill,
causing a spilled confession:

They are terrified of love so true.

Their eyes blinded by devilish lies and glitz
Hearts dipped and coated with lust
Unable to…

Seeking Him

“Peace be still”, were the words that he spoke.  And with that, the sea became calm. I looked at him in wonder, thinking how could this be?  “Maybe he is the one the people spoke of”, “the light of deliverance”, thinking to myself.  “Could he be the one to heal me of the anguish inside?”

When we reached the shore, before I could talk with him, a crowd had surrounded him and everyone asking for…

On His Sleeve

Wears it on his sleeve

Long or short, doesn’t matter

Kindness and love are his creed

Following the steps of The Kings of Kings

The world may criticise

Society may ostracize

But the love of God more than doubles their size

Stretched, ripped, or torn

He refuses to hide it away

Covered in grace, his heart is refreshed daily

And remains beating vibrantly

On his sleeve,

Always

Continuing On

God has come.

I see the light
I see the Son
Giving me the strength
To continue on

Not in the form of a burning bush
But in a greeting from family or a friend

I see you in a love that rests in my soul

That sails throughout my mind

I see you in flowers and green lawns
I see you in the clouds passing by
In a child’s happy face
and a loving pet’s affection

I feel you in my heartbeat
In the wind sweeping across…

Soul Singer

My soul sings

of beautiful things

In tune with angelic beings

God of mercy

Holy Son

I am restored

My spirit glides

with invisible wings

cut free from the world’s strings

not in pursuit

of the finer things

selfish goals

or selfish needs

my heart infused with divine dreams

my soul sings

of beautiful things

His Name Shall Be Called Jesus

A choir of stars in the midnight sky
Illuminating heaven with great love
This chorus of lights seen around the earth
Each individual heart captivated
Expressions of joy, cradled within peace
No hate, no evil
Humbleness befalls the meek, long suffering…

The Carpenter’s Son

“Behold, I bring you tidings of joy”

Said the angel of the most high

And in a manger the holy one was born

Jesus, Messiah

In multitude the heavenly host gave praise

Healer of the sick

Deliverer of the weak

Savior of all

He spoke with the authority of God

The Reason Why You Came

For the ones that sit alone

Lost in the dark corners of home and mind

For the ones afraid to look in the mirror

Ashamed at the image that will stare back at them

For the ones that thinks “I don’t belong”

Exiling themselves from the world

For life’s…
