Sunflowers

















Thinking about the past.
And how things have been left behind.
Too much time on my mind
and lessons learned while my heart was aching.

Sunflowers
Gently moving in the soft spring breeze.
Life and love, death and eternity.
Too many sins I haven't paid the price for.

What does it all mean?
This life we are born into.
Is it all just to live and breathe?
Then die and return to dust?

How many times must I remind myself...
Of the love and the world You created for me.
Of the times you have saved me from the pit of Hell.
This life has meaning once you see the Path you're on.

So this day while I think of the past,
I must put it behind, the memories that ache in my soul.
This life is worth living after all.
When You are in it.

Melancholia
















Sometimes I don't understand
Why people enter our lives,
Some to upset us,
Some to help us,
All within Your plan.

Sometimes Your Love is hard to know,
when everything around is crashing down.
Sometimes my life is so frustrating,
When clouds and rain are all I see.

Sometimes I just wonder,
Why You took me and saved me
From this desolate world,
I never was a citizen here.

You will never know the times I thought of you.
And how I feel about you.
It is better to not think of the past,
Only to look to tomorrow.

Lifeblood




The past lingers in my mind.
This photograph taken before I knew
That you had become my friend
What was life like then?


Seems so long ago.
When I knew who you were
Now we barely say a word.
Time and space erasing.


I see more clearly now
The lifeblood so rich and pure
Redder than the blooms on the tree
That You hung on and died for me.
