Poem Commentary

I don't have much desire to be contrived, but welcome your comments.

Gratitude

Grateful You opened the world to me

Challenged to know my destiny

Thankful for the words You spoke

That give foundation for all hope.

 

Grateful for the eloquence

With which the tales are told

E’er praying for the temperance

Your glory to behold

 

Turn the corner, cross the river

Choose this path rather than..

To know where is the giver

That leads to promised land

 

Who could know to design this life…

And orchestrate the masses

Who am I to be your wife?

And see through others glasses?

 

Consumed by Your mission

Infused by Your compassion

I will carry on

            I will carry on…

I will carry on.

An attitude of gratitude! My former pastor preached a good sermon or two on that theme. "Who could know to design this life… And orchestrate the masses Who am I to be your wife? And see through others glasses?" What a scrumptious rhyme!!! It should be on a poster somewhere. To add to the comment from ianscott.You have acting talents I have no doubt- Drama is an important part of our lives.

Once again, I apologize for the late acknowledgement of your comment. I have been promised more hidden gems, but it seems I can't hold my breath as long as yourself, the water is still a bit murky here. I am humbled by your kind words.

To have great poets there must be great audiences too.

Walt Whitman, American Poet (1819-1892)
