Just for You

Jesus and child

Just for You
There’s nothing I wouldn’t do
I’d come running when you fall
Wipe your every tear
Hold you in my arms
Fight away the fear.

I’d face the hardest trials
To simply know your heart
Your name is My Beloved
We are never far apart
I pray for you unceasingly
Sing many lullabies
Remind you what I see
When I look into your eyes
There’s no mountain
And no valley that
Is too tall or wide
I’d fight your every battle
And would gladly give my life…


Happy Valentine’s Day




I thought I knew

What it meant

To give myself away

But in the light

Of the great cross

I have no words to say

For who could ever measure up

To what He gave that day

Yes, I thought I knew

What it meant

To give myself away

You see there is no going back

I’m on this path to stay

Following His footsteps

I will not go astray

But will I keep on walking?

Fighting for my faith?

You see, I thought I knew

What it meant

to give myself away

Can I be courageous?

What am I holding back?

I want to carry my cross

Feel it’s weight upon my back

I want to run the good race

I want to understand

Yes I want to know

what it means

to give myself away

And there’s no better teacher

Then the One who paved the way

He walked this path before me

Though trials come my way

I will discover what it means

to give myself away.

That’s why this path

Is rightly named

“The only way”

What Remains


Flimsy papers start to fray

Bindings come undone

Words though written in fine ink

Fade quickly in the sun

Books, strewn across the floor

Are strewn farthest in the mind

And like the many stories told

They lose their voice in time.

But there is one such story

That resides not in the mind

It’s pages never come to rot

its words don’t lose their shine.

It’s binding is its very core

Held tight by sacrifice.

This story is our story

And all stories intertwined

Its voice is hope, love, and truth

Drawing people near

It will not be forgotten

Not now nor coming years

This book lives in our hearts

A treasure from God Most High

A promise, a gift, a future

Given to mankind

There is no story greater

In this world, we call decay

Though many stories turn to dust

This is what remains.



Peter’s Poem


I stared upon the blackened deep

But a light was shining onto me

For straight ahead there stood my friend

Hands outstretched, inviting in

I took a step, a leap of faith

Towards my friend out on the lake

Though storms were shrouding me in fear

 The task ahead was very clear

I felt the water lick my toes

And on the tempest fear arose

T’was then that I began to sink

No time to scream, less time to think

But before the waters swallowed me

My dearest friend had set me free

Next thing I knew, I was ashore

Forever changed, forevermore

That friend who fought away my fears

Had saved my life and future years

Now hangs he on a gnarled tree

my dearest friend who died for me…

Sodom’s Fate

2010 Flordia Trip 003

There stood a man upon a hill

His face was set, his body still

He stood because no one will

He stood for justice on that hill

His gaze it fell upon the world

Where love was lost and hearts had chilled

He stared at Sodom on that hill

The fate of the world, standing still

So much sin, had it been filled

In his hands he held it all

In one death, does Sodom fall?

In the other mercy, for some or all?

That’s why he faltered on that hill

He must make sure their fate was still

If ten or more he will relent

For his love cannot be spent

Nor his justice be bent

The truth is deep and deeper still

He loves that city on the hill

But deny himself he cannot

So does Sodom fall, or does it not?


The Final Battle

A scene indescribable, Armageddon begins. The battle of battles, yet knowing who wins. Victory! Victory! On everyone’s lips. The demons stand shaking, losing their grip. Their eyes cannot stray from the man on the rock, whose eyes are ablaze, zealous for God. He points with one finger, and the angels take flight, attacking the demons, a fearful sight. Nothing can break the explosion of light! The darkness scatters, eternal delight.
