NOTE: I thank those who have spread the word of my site. I do not spend money advertising. I do not ask for money. My poems are free so that even the poorest of the poor can be comforted with my poetry. I am pleased when others are blessed. No amount of money can surpass that. I am now blessed with about 10,000 page views per month and my prayer is that through my poetry, that this world can become a safer, more loving and respectful place - that those who do not know who Jesus really was (and still is), will come to know the peace, healing, sacrifice and grace He has given to those who truly believe in Him and faithfully follow. I pray that you enjoy my story poems...

And That Is Why 5-20-14



Children sleep.
Moms cry.
Moms lie awake nights.
That is why.

Children hunger.
Moms cry.
Moms work several chores.
That is why.

Children question.
Moms cry.
Moms know their child's thoughts.
That is why.

Children argue.
Moms cry.
Moms have softer hearts.
That is why.

Children tempted.
Moms cry.
Moms love their children.
That is why.

Children in sin.
Moms cry.
Moms have more wisdom.
That is why.

Children troubled.
Moms cry
pleading with Jesus.
That is why.

Children busy.
Moms cry.
Moms miss them so much.
That is why.

Children absent.
Moms cry
alone in the 'home'.
That is why.
---
And that is why
God's love can touch.
He sent His Son
who suffered much.

We're children, all -
sinners, mankind.
Confess, repent -
then seek to find.

Moms and children
hug and cry.
Jesus saves
and that is why.

  1. This poem has looked into a mother's heart and seen the joy and the pain one carries for her child...I could not have expressed it better than this...It is like looking into a glass mirror and seeing the true you as a mother...Thank you, for sharing, Louis...God bless you my friend, Cinda
