My Day With YOU

I rose this morning
With You upon my heart
And without any warning
Your love began to start.
Your presence stays with me
Throughout the whole day;
I am safe and warm
And so close to you this way.
We talk and i sing.
To You the praises i bring.
Sometimes, without words
We say everything.
Then later i lay down
With You upon my heart
And without any warning
Your love begins to start.
All day You moved me,
Forever to be shaken.
And at night You watch me
So that my foot will not be taken.
You are Father and Friend
Always to me.
From now until the end
Our bond will be.

No One Compares

No moonlight nor sun
Shines quite as bright an He.
And nothing here that calms me
Can comfort such as He.
No night or darkness
Can cover the light that shines.
No person or angel
Can love me such as mine.
No smile or grin is as sweet
Or kind as His smiling face.
No touch or caress
Can liken to His embrace.
No chorus or song
Is as heavenly as His voice;
And only His love and message
Can cause the hearts true rejoice.
No death or sacrifice
Can cover us like His Son's.
No saint nor sinner forgives
Quite like the Lord has done.

How i Feel
(written on December 15th 2005 - being posted here to help others in their struggles.)

I can't stop the pain
But i know why its there.
I can't hide the tears
But this i will share :
When one is wronged
And made to feel guilt
It tears down the the love that was built.
The foundation cracks
And falls to the ground.
Crying is the way it sounds.
In an instant it's gone
And all that remains,
Is a broken heart and sorrows pain.
What can you say or do
To make it alright?
There's nothing to be done;
At least not tonight.
Get over it they say
But not easy to do.
The Lord will repay;
He can see me and YOU.
