Can We Bring Back the Color   Leave a comment

There is so much of me you do not see

You’re blinded by the color

The details, clear and sharp, are blurred

Like words that drunkards slur


You paint a stroke so careless and so broad

And gather all you can to self

As though there’s no one else


Changes occur so slowly; you’re too self absorbed to notice

Then like a storm of unrelenting lightning strikes

Realizations, undeniable, and frightening

The world as you once knew it

Has begun to disappear


Your hoarding, greed, and fear, and doubt

Sucked out all the color of your life

The choice is sacred, now supreme

And there’s only one to make

Will it be black — Will it be white


What you perceive as gray — is held together by grace

Like a reckless child, the rest you have erased

Only black and white remain

And that too, is fading fast


Oh God, I pray bring back the color to our world

When care-free choices once were many

I frolicked through each season

Taking for granted, there would be a next


 The evidence, the knowledge, is a stark and grievous burden

One more chance, I beg to see

To save what’s left of me

Then with hope, to save another

That we, with You, bring back to life, the wonder, and the color




How Many Ways There are to Love   Leave a comment

How, in love, could I, with a flower, fall

What once seemed so inanimate

Now making known her needs


In wilting leaves and weeping blooms

Begging please, make room for me

I am not as the vapor of a passing cloud


In thanks for care I freely give

A multitude of brilliant buds

And colors that please the eye


Now as seasons change, I cry

Make room for me where you reside

Before the autumn’s bite I no longer can withstand


No greater satisfaction is there than

To know we’re One, not just on earth

But in our God’s eternal plans


Love MeSigned
