HAVE MERCY

Have mercy Lord, have mercy on me,

Remembering your steadfast love;

Remember not the sins of my youth,

Lord of Love–have mercy on me!

Cleanse me and poor out your Spirit,

Wash out pride and foolishness…

Take away my arrogant and spiteful ways

Loving Lord let your Spirit fill me.

Saving Lord, have mercy on me,

You’ve revealed my wicked ways…

My sins are with me wherever I go,

My heart purge and set me free!

Have mercy oh Lord–forgive

My sins are against you alone…

Only you can take them away,

Have mercy, have mercy on me!

Thinking Of You

Jonathan Caswell:

WONDERFUL…!

Originally posted on Deanne's World:

I spent my night
Alone and lost
In thoughts of you
I hold so dear
My oh my
Love has come
My way once more
But, this time
It’s for real
I’ll be loving
You always
With every
Ounce of me
Until I’ve nothing left
For you’ve been
A dream now real
So won’t you be
My lover, my friend
My sweetheart always
‘Til the end of time

A GOOD THING FOR BUSINESS

Jonathan Caswell:

I THINK I…AND YOU…HAD BETTER READ THIS!!!!

Originally posted on OUR POETRY CORNER:

A GOOD THING FOR BUSINESS

My wife was waiting today

Seeing if I felt okay…

Been sleeping too much,

Getting out of touch

With my own health issues array.

She insisted I test and see

The blood sugar level for me,

And take my pills

Preventing ills…

She needs me to be healthy.

Forgets myself oft enough

‘Specially when the wife’s road gets rough,

It’s easy to neglect

My own introspect

When I’m needed in our intersect.

So she loves by helping me see

And remember what’s needed by me…

For a wife’s a good thing,

Together we swing

A-helping each other to Be!

WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

Jonathan Caswell:

LISTEN TO YOUR SPOUSE—SAVE A LOT OF TIME AND ENERGY!!!

Originally posted on OUR POETRY CORNER:

WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

Where do we go from here,

We seem to be stuck my dear…

Isolating yourself

Puts me on the shelf,

And THAT is what I fear.

So where do we go from here,

I have to make something clear…

I love you too much

To let you go dutch

And end your life out of fear.

There needs to be some change,

Some things we can re-arrange—

You must let me in

Through thick or thin,

I don’t want us to become estranged.

So where can we head right now,

Without having one big row…

Some furniture moved,

Situation improved

By daily maintenance plow.

I’ll try to do what I can do

So it won’t again fall all to you…

I can help if I know

Where you want to go,

And prove that my love for you is true.

(What my wife tried…

THE POETS POSE, by Carl Gooch

Jonathan Caswell:

THE FLOWERS ARE IN BLOOM!!!!

The Poets Pose
The poets purpose and pose
Is to write the words right,
Of the dreams dreamers dream
And give heart to the unseen thing.
As the pen caresses the page
And a thin line of ink appears,
The blankness of nothing vanishes
Along with the writers fears.
From a thought a word is born
An expression from within,
Conveying from one to another
Ideas from brother to brother.
Be they of beauty or of haunt
They bind many into one
To form the whole and share,
All the secrets hidden there.
The poets poem a flower in bloom
Grows from the seed of need
To advise, to tell or to explain
That which the heart does contain.

GOD BLESSED ME TODAY!

Jonathan Caswell:

TODAY…AS WELL!!!!

Originally posted on OUR POETRY CORNER:

GOD BLESSED ME TODAY!

I know that God blessed me today

In a very specific way…

I needed a tire

Before the “doughnut” “expired,

And I didn’t have much to pay.

I called tire shops and went down

But there weren’t any of my tire around…

Drove down back to see

If a used one might be

Available at a price I could sound.

A maintenance shop I used before

Welcomed me before I got to the door…

They had a tire in stock,

Put it on my rim and shock—

Didn’t charge to take the one that was poor.

God really did bless me today…

Car service at a price I could pay,

The “new” tire  replaced

The spare that God graced ,

With faith in God I  found a  way.

I had enough left to fill

The gas tank with a twenty-dollar  bill…

With dollars to spare
