Strangers as Family

Strangers as family

who would have known?

Strange things have happened

bringing me home

 

Strangers as family

I’d never have guessed

different kinds of DNA

in strands so fully blessed,

 

Would tell me such a story

that I would live to tell

How people that I barely knew

would save me from such hell

 

I love my stranger family

and those whose binds would twine

such greater understanding

though they possess

is also mine

When the World’s Upside Down

Where do you go

when the world’s upside down

when your very best friends

look upon you and frown

Who do you seek

when the going gets blue

who can you trust

who will always be true

Jesus is Who

He’s the one that makes new

He’ll never desert you

Sitting righteous in pew

He’ll always love hue

though your virtues are few

He’ll be your glory

when your shine becomes goo

He’ll battle old Saul

for the right for your soul

It’s Jesus who loves you

so roll, baby, roll.

Sunday About Her

Felt

Happy

Blessed

Her presence always somehow

in my heart

When she’s not there

she is

Her peace and love

not a saving grace

nor a desperate call

No disappointment

Just a holding place,

a Chosen grace

The remnants of her last embrace

These things

physically rationed

out to my garden heart

The magnetic force of love

I have

her

condensed and over-flowing

love peace sending

care without a word for days

Her affection joins

and blesses

She blesses

She

 

 

The Gift

 

Violin girl

Love

ingrained beneath my leather skin

inside my soft heart-pillow,

and I’m two and forty-nine and seventy-three

in this one formidable body.

No yearning for constant reminders

of who I might be;

I’m over the moon for lack of extremes.

Dear friend,

We’ll last forever.
