PASSION AND LOVE
Samson so loved Delilah
He ended up grinding grain.
Anthony so loved Cleopatra
He lost all and was slain.
David so loved Bathsheba
He drifted from God’s command.
The way I feel makes it easy
To imagine and understand.
You‘re the inspiration of my day
And the delight of my night.
The joy we share as we conceive
Makes everything feel just right.
Thank heaven for passion and love
Blessings from God to man.
Without them we’re mere creatures
Subsisting like ants in the sand.
JESUS IS A FISHERMAN
Jesus is a fisherman
Who saves the souls of man.
Dead or alive he leads the faithful
To the streams of promise land.
He sees us when we’re happy
He hears us when we’re glad.
He whispers words of hope to us
When we face something sad.
As wicked thoughts control the mind
Evil deeds control the heart.
Jesus is who we turn to
When from sins we must depart.
Jesus is a fisherman
Who baits his hook with love.
Casting his line in your direction
From the banks of heaven above.
TO BE BLESSED BY LOVE
Dewdrops by the millions greet the dawn
While gathering bees buzz the clover.
Birds now awake harmonize in song
As the shadows of night pass over.
Darkness submits to the brightness of day
For all rich, famous or peasant.
God gives us love as a tool of endurance
For what is glorious, painful or unpleasant.
He gives us friends that mean so much
Though his greatest gift is fathers and mothers.
From them we learn the guidance we need
Or from grandparents, sisters and brothers.
How rewarding it is to share our concerns
Of the burdens that trouble man’s soul.
With words of love, passion and faith
With happiness and purpose our goal.
To be blessed by love elevates life
Projecting a radiance of grace to our face.
Like the heavenly bodies that illuminate the night
As we voyage through the vastness of space.
** LOVE CONSUMES ALL **
Love consumes all physical functions
Hearing, taste, touch, thought and smell.
It can heal, destroy, weaken or bond
Those caught in its presence and spell.
May I be remembered by tears of love
When my hands lay across my chest.
Displayed for view to say goodbye
To my family, friends, and the rest.
Until it’s time for my final farewell
I will serve whom I love even more.
These words of passion inhabit my heart
Conveying my need for all, I adore.
