Seed of remembrance


In memory of a friend who died recently

Seed of Remembrance

God has now called you for his own,
As to his kingdom you now ascend.
But, within our hearts, a seed has been sown,
Left there to help, to heal, and to mend.


For your love still grows where you have been,
Every seed that you planted grows strong.
For although, in Heaven, you are now seen,
It’s within our hearts, you will always belong.

Life reborn (poem)


Reborn into a new life

Life reborn

Standing in a new place, a new horizon seen,
Pausing from life’s long race, letting go of what has been.
The tunnel is behind, the stars now shine above,
Clarity in the mind, the soul now full of love.

A stillness lies around, a calmness in the air,
Standing on solid ground, new hope is living there.
A freshness of clear skies, a newness of life reborn,
Off your soul now flies, rising with this new dawn.

Your shadows fading fast, as the sun touches you,
The darkness of the past, now fading from your view.
The future is unknown, but the past cannot bind,
For a new life has grown, and there for you to find.

The Joy of Forgiving


Forgiveness brings the joy of new hope

The joy of forgiving

The joy of forgiving, the soul can start living,
As the spirit of love conquers the fear.
The thawing of the heart, forgiveness can now start,
As the dawn of understanding draws near.

The joy of tomorrow, the release of sorrow,
As yesterday’s pain fades into the past.
The emergence of hope, your spirit can now cope,
As forgiveness brings a peace that can last.

The joy of happiness, your sadness can regress,
As the sunlight of new hope conquers all.
The forgiveness within, a new life can begin,
As the strength of love in your heart stands tall.

Through Heaven’s Gate


For a friend who died recently

Through Heaven’s gate

Standing there quietly beside you as your eyes now close in sleep,
Reflective is the Lord to whom you commend your soul to keep.
He waits until you are ready before stretching out his hand,
To lead your soul out from this life and into his Fathers land.
The land of calm and tranquillity, where blessedness is found,
Of harmony and forgiveness, and where love is all around.
Through the gate into His kingdom is the final step you take,
Where in the peace and beauty of heaven, does your soul awake

A Lucky Life


We are lucky People

A lucky life

There’s no drought outside my door. No flood spread across my floor.
There is plenty of food here that I can eat.
There’s no guns firing at me, no battles that I can see
Everyone’s moving safely along my street

There’s no tanks that will collide, I don’t need to run and hide
The enemy is nowhere near to my door
I can sleep in peace tonight, I don’t need to go and fight.
I do not fear what tomorrow has in store

I will wake in restful dawn, blackbirds singing on the lawn
A land of calmness with no war to be seen
There is clear water to drink, a peaceful place I can think
Oh yes, I know how lucky my life has been

The Inner Truth (poem)


Butterfly 2 small
The Truth within us:

The Inner Truth

If truth becomes an illusion, if anger takes over the heart,
If life gets lost in confusion, if hatred tears friendships apart.
If reasoning becomes a task, and understanding fades from sight,
If we are unable to ask, for help in the darkest of night.

Then what of our life in this day, what will now become of our fate,
When mankind is losing it way, and peace is now closing its gate.
When happiness turns to sorrow, when our laughter turns into tears,
When all our dreams for tomorrow, are lost in amongst all our fears.

We must seek out our inner truth, that our heart is only for love,
To let love protect like a roof, stopping the hate fall from above.
That we don’t have to walk that path, of anger against the unknown
We can step out of hates cold draught, and let love rule out heart alone.

That peace can be found from within, and shared by stretching our hand,
And hope will help us to begin, to help us all to understand.
That faith in mankind gives us strength, and within ourselves it is found
That kindness can stretch any length, and our love stands on solid ground.

I Turn To You (poem)


Rainbow 1
When someone is there for you:

I Turn to You

Whenever there is a storm cloud, high in the sky.
Whenever the horizon fades, leaving my sight.
Whenever my truths have all turned into a lie.
And my brightest day, has become my darkest night.

I know that if I but just step back in my fear.
That if I but shut my eyes to all that I now see.
That you will begin to step forward, and draw near.
And that by your presence there, you will rescue me.

For I turn to you now, in thunder and in rain.
And I turn to you whenever my life feels low.
For I know that with you, my strength I will regain.
And you will take those clouds, and make me a rainbow.

You will take my hand and then lead me through the rain.
Beyond the rainbows arch, to where the sun does shine.
I turn to you and by your side I will remain.
And throughout this world, you will be forever mine.
