for if he did not love me,
I would not have been where I am today.
He loves me every second of my life,
He cares for, he watches over me,
He guides me from evil,
and protects me from danger,
My Lord truly loves me and I know it.
When I cry he wipes away my tear,
He brings a smile on my face,
He shows me that there are worst
things happening out there;
and so I am better off here than there.
When I do wrong, he forgives me,
For he loves me, he gives me another chance
to move on and not to repeat the same mistake.
He gave his life up for my sins,
My God truly loves me and I know it.

I am a widow and a working mother. I always used to dabble a few words on a piece of paper and stick it in my scrapbook until I discovered poetry sites and then started seriously writing and posting to them.
I have been writing since three decades, mostly free verse. I have published two books on Amazon and a few poems through Prism and Alphabet Soup Poetry Anthology.
