~ Today ~

I thought of others...

A weary soul is quite depressed

A small child abused and lonely

A loved one must be laid to rest...

~ Today ~

I thought of the homeless

As it very well could be me -

To help others would be nice

I'm sure everyone will agree...

~Today ~

I asked God...

To give peace...to a weary soul

His mercy to an abused child

Shelter to a homeless vet

Their lives no longer to be defiled...

~ Today ~

I looked toward heaven

God's creations a sheer delight -

Clouds forming diverse shapes

Moving swiftly out of sight...

After looking towards Heaven -

seeing God's work which gives me life

~Today ~

I asked God to... 





give peace to all ~ free from strife

Knowing God as I do...

If ~ "God's eye is on the sparrow -

I know...He is watching over you."


Poem of the Month contest entry


Thanks Google images for the use of the artwork.

There's no specific format or style, just penning the way I know how. My thoughts were on others who are going through difficult times. We must always bless others when we can. Words of encouragement, a love token and a gentle smile will give comfort to someone in need.

The last two lines in my poem...taken from the song, "His Eye is on the Sparrow."
