Whispers of the Soul

It speaks to me in whispers,
That still, small voice within.
It guides me through my life;
Drawing me away from sin.

It leads me to understand
The reason for my being:
With ancient words of wisdom,
All knowing and all seeing.

I never fail to heed
The soul's soft whispering voice,
For it brings me peace of mind
And makes my heart rejoice.

Be With Me

Be with me, God, when I'm happy
And all of my skies are blue;
Don't let me take life for granted
But for ever be thankful to You.

Be with me, God, when I'm sad
And my heart is filled with pain;
Help me to always remember
I'll walk in the sunshine again.

Be with me, God, when I wander
Away from the path I should tread;
Gently guide me home once more,
Only You know what lies ahead.

Be with me, God, for all of the years
Safe in your loving care.
I'll not let my faith ever waver
For I know You will always be there.

STILL HERE

Today I knew you were lonely,
I was watching while you cried;
I wanted to reach out and touch you,
Let you know I was by your side.

It hurts me to see you grieving,
For I know you can't understand.
If only just for one moment,
You could feel the touch of my hand.

Beyond the veil that divides us
I'm only a heartbeat away;
Though my life on earth is over
I am walking beside you each day

. As the sun rises in the morning,
I can still share the beauty with you,
Here in my heavenly home,
I see from a different view.

I hear your sighs in the evening
When a myriad of stars are aglow;
I sense that you are remembering,
The love that we shared long ago.

Tonight when sleep beckons you
In dreams you'll sense me draw near.
When the sun rises in the morning,
Remember my love I'm still here.

Life

Never take life for granted
Whatever comes your way,
Just grasp it in both hands
And enjoy it every day.

Sometimes sorrow comes your way
Blocking out the light,
That's the time to pray and
To know you'll win the fight.

Life is but a journey
Through mountains, hills and vales
We cannot have the sunshine
If we have no rain and gales.

So enjoy each precious moment,
And always give your best
Remember keep faith in God
Then you'll be truly blessed.

One Chance

If I could have one chance
To be with you again,
I'd fill your world with sunshine,
Take away your pain.

It's only now with hindsight,
I realise your worth,
So I'd worship and adore you
For all our time on earth.

If I could have a chance
Forgiveness I would plead,
For all the hurt I caused you
I'd fulfil your every need.

This chance that I am seeking,
From pride I will retreat,
For just to have you in my arms
Would make my life complete.

Mother's Hands

Hands that rocked the cradle
From the moment of my birth,
Their tender touch remembered
By those still on this earth.

Soft as silk those hands
That taught me how to pray,
Banishing childhood fears;
They soothed each one away.

When I grew much older
And troubles came my way,
Those hands caressing mine
Did more than words could say.

Mother's hands were gentle,
They're missed so very much,
I'd give the world to feel once more
Their warm and tender touch.

Those hands were full of comfort
Now they lie at rest,
But memory holds them close
To the ones they served the best.

True Friend

True friends will always stay with you,
Through good times and through bad.
They'll take the time to listen,
When something's made you sad.

When you're feeling lonely,
They'll let you know they care.
They may be very busy but,
They'll find the time to share.

True friends are happy for you,
When good things come your way.
They'll celebrate your triumphs
And encourage you each day.

If you have a friend that's true,
Count your blessings for this gift.
For, she will stay with you forever,
When the rest have gone adrift.

A Caring Heart

Walk through life with a caring heart,
You'll always find someone in need;
Go out of your way to help,
And you will be blessed by the deed.

For all life's blessings are born,
From a heart that's filled with love,
And all your good acts are seen
By the eyes of God above.

So as you travel through life
Always find some time to spare,
To give someone a helping hand,
With a heart that is full of care.
