Sunshine in the Valley

Post No. 876

Sunshine in the Valley

.

Let the sun shine in the valley

Chase the shadows far far away

It breaks my heart to see you suffer

It breaks my heart to see your pain

.

If i could turn the clocks around

And let the cogs themselves unwind

Return once more to yesteryear

Firmly anchored ‘gainst the wind

.

Father God there’s only You

Shielding us from desolation

Preserving us from devastation

With you on our side we must abide

Footsteps

Post No. 874

Footsteps

.

A trail of footsteps lead

across the fine sea sand

washed away in moments

by the incoming tide

gone without a trace

love letters long erased.

.

I walk along the high tide line,

mine are the steps i leave behind

my heart bleeds with every beat

consumed by memories

of a love that died

that couldn’t last from tide to tide.

.

The weight i drag upon my back

in a sack i cannot share

mine to own and mine alone

a task to shoulder willingly

‘til He shows me the way to go

smooths the path for me to follow.

Anew

Post No. 873

Anew

.

An old soul born anew

Created at the beginning of time

And given a new life

Another chance to dance

To the Master’s tune

Or to slouch off independence street

Not yet full-grown, but foot loose

Fancy free, smart alec know-it-all

Right ready to take a fall

Who knows, who cares

Enough to help to break the spell

To fill the hole which parents held

Before the busy-ness of life

Removed their power from the child

Pain

Post No. 872

Pain

.

You have become

A second skin

Closer than a shadow

Nearer than kith or kin

An integral part of my heart

Seldom absent in the present

A constant companion

With degrees of contrast

More so now than in the past

To prise myself loose

I must find a distraction

Requiring my fullest attention

My complete focus

So you gently curl around me

In the quiet of the night

Night, Wind and Son

Night, Wind and Son

.

I wake in the night

To the moon and stars

Shining ever so bright

Embellishing the skies

.

The wind whispers His name

Rustling through the trees

Who are you, I ask

I am He, it replies

.

The Son, heaven’s crown

Blesses all He shines upon

Bringing life-giving rain

Relief from heat and pain

Why Fear

Post No. 869

Why Fear

.

She is my voice

Hers are my tears

Crying in the wilderness

Silent in my fears

.

Afraid to open the gates

Lest I should drown

Showing my nakedness

My helplessness I own

.

I am not ashamed

To declare you my God

My maker my creator

So tell me why

Oh why do I hide

My feelings deep inside

.

Golden Tree

Golden Tree

.

With the change of season

Some trees are bare(ly) there

Others still fully clothed

Some covered in fruit blossom

But this one caught my eye

Sunlight filters through golden leaves

Tree of knowledge from the garden

or fake gold for a fake world

.
