NOTE: Word-of-mouth is the only advertising I have ever done and I thank those who have spread the word. I do not spend money advertising. I do not ask for donations. 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 over 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, 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...

Meant To Be (song lyrics) 8-26-14

(lyrics set to Hymn To Hope)

Selfish, was I?
I want-ed my own way.
and wanted it - to stay, that, way,
so I could life - enjoy...

But then the skies - poured - down -
and threw me to - the, mud-dy, ground
so then I tried - to run and hide
where I could not be - found.

Again - the skies - poured - down
and threw me to the muddy ground
so there, I - stayed, and prayed  
where sin could not - destroy. 

--- (short interlude / change of key)

Selfish?
I tried to close my eyes.
No matter how I tried and tried,
I couldn't hold my cries...

Selfish, was I?  Oh, why -
I shut, so tight, my wear-y - eyes.
No matter how I tried - and tried
I could-n't - hold my cries.

The tears - poured out - of - me
My life was blurred.  I could-n't see
the words my mother spoke -
that pain was meant to be.

The tears poured out - of - me.
My heart was blurred.  I could-n't see -
the cross where Jesus died -
(fade) that love was meant to - be...
(continue fade) ...that love was meant to be...
